Good Reads for Lent
Messenger Publications, a part of The Sacred Heart Messenger operation, has a new line up of books to be published both for Lent and Easter time.
Stations for the Soul by artist Joan Keogh is one such book. The book features her own paintings and thoughts on Christ’s passion as mediated through her work. Another books is by diocesan priest Alan Hilliard who has written a series of of forty stories and reflections for the reader to dip in and out of over the Lenten season. Donal Neary SJ, who is also editor of The Sacred Heart Messenger, says that all Messenger books are aimed at people who want to take a bit of time to reflect on the meaning of faith in their everyday lives. “The books are simple but not simplistic,” he says, ” and Dipping into Lent is the ideal book for people who want to mark Lent without feeling burdened by the six-week stretch”.
In this interview with Pat Coyle of Irish Jesuit Communications, Donal Neary SJ, who runs Messenger Publications, talks about these and other books they have in the pipeline as well as sharing some of the rich history of their publications.
