Lenten Homilies of Benedict XVI
Lent comes every year to help Christians return to God, encouraging them to make a new commitment to following Christ. The Holy Father is a perfect guide and companion through this important liturgical season. In this collection of his Lenten homilies, he calls on all those searching for God, to know as they search that God wishes to be found. He covers the three great spiritual weapons, prayer, fasting and almsgiving, that the Church puts at the disposal of all the faithful to aid them in the spiritual battle. Each one of them, Pope Benedict argues, is an indispensable gift on the journey towards the resurrection and heaven.
