The Joy of LentCompiled and Edited by Pat McDonough I like Lent. It's like an old friend with whom I can argue year after year and know that I'm a better person for being challenged. I like what Lent does to me. Its grace forms me and transforms me time and time again. My love for Lent inspired this book. I wanted to know what other people thought about during these forty days. Do they fast? Do they honor Lent in a way I haven't thought about? I asked forty people in my life to share their thoughts on the Lenten readings. I hope you enjoy reading their responses as much as I did. --From the Introduction by Pat McDonough Lent always has more to teach us: not fearfully to flee our helplessness but to find a love that moves us out to the other suffering people. In this way, Lent is always a special season anointing us, not for pride and privilege, but for courage in compassion
