Free Word Made Flesh
Lenten Sunday Mass Companion
from Christopher West!
We have a special gift for you this Lent!
Sign up below and receive our free Lenten Sunday Mass Companion eBooklet culled from Dr. Christopher West's landmark series Word Made Flesh: A Companion to the Sunday Readings (Ave Maria Press). From the First Sunday of Lent through Easter Sunday, this series of brief reflections will illuminate those readings from this year's Cycle B and bring you more intimately into the sacrificial, healing love of Jesus.
You will experience Lent like never before!
Inspired by the scriptural vision St. John Paul II unfolded for us in his 129 Wednesday audiences from 1979 to 1984 that came to be known as the "Theology of the Body" (TOB), the brief, prayerful reflections on the Sunday readings in this eBooklet are intended to "open our minds to understand the Scriptures" by reading them in light of "the Word which is incarnate and living."
Our hope is that you will keep this little eBooklet with you when you go to Sunday Mass throughout Lent. Use it to guide your prayer after Communion. Or better yet, get to Mass early enough to read the day's readings in advance and then use this companion to help you enter into the treasures of that day's liturgy. Like the disciples on the road to Emmaus, Christ is walking with us to "open the Scriptures" to us so as to reveal himself to us in the breaking of the bread. Lord, give us the ears that hear and eyes that see. Amen!
