Just as done during Advent, the Deanery of Appalachia undertook the production and publication of a devotional manual for the days of Lent in 2022. The scripture lessons, from which the devotionals were developed, come from the daily lectionary in the Book of Common Prayer. The devotionals for the Sundays in Lent are taken from the homilies of various Church Fathers and are based on the Eucharistic Gospel lesson for the particular day. Fr. Paul Rivard, Area Dean, is the editor of this work and he writes, “It is my prayer that…those who use this devotional can say that something within these pages served to keep them on the straight and narrow path towards the goal that the Church has always intended for the season of Lent – a joyful, holy, and glorious Easter feast!” Please feel free to download for your personal use and those of your fellow parishioners.
