More Lenten Reading: The Stational Churches of Rome

An additional consideration for Lenten exercises that I wished to mention to our readership is a booklet compiled by Fr. Frank Phillips, the pastor of St. John Cantius in Chicago: The Stational Churches of Rome.

In this booklet, Fr. Phillips guides you through each day of Lent (and also most of the Octave of Easter), by taking you through the various Roman stational churches of the Lenten season -- and additionally offering various daily prayers and meditations along the way. (Fr. Phillips also provides some suggestions for familiies who wish to follow the stational churches through Lent in his preface.)

These are offered in a short, single page format for each day, thus providing an easy and accessible form of daily Lenten reading, and concurrently introducing one to the various stational churches of Rome.

While Lent begins in only a few days, if you order soon, you will still get the benefit out of this book for the majority of the Lenten season.

The book is available through the Cantius Web Store:
