Product Description

'For any who long for more order, peace and joy.' Stephen Cherry, Dean, King's College Cambridge

Our world badly needs Christ's light and peace. One way to bring these blessings to one another is to attend to our own hearts and to learn to live well.

Living Lent well involves turning back to God to receive his blessing. In this deep and practical book, a guide for Lent and the rest of the year, Sr Laurentia distils the sixth-century Rule of St Benedict as a series of blessings. Closely based on Scripture, the Rule highlights that the whole of life has a Lenten character and points to a joyful eternity.

This accessible guide also includes ideas for reflection and action at the end of each chapter.


1 The blessing of beginning

2 The blessing of gospel living

3 The blessing of attentiveness

4 The blessing of the Word

5 The blessing of worship

6 The blessing of reverence

7 The blessing of welcoming

8 Epilogue: The blessing of ‘beyond’
