    In Trouble with Lent, the fourth book of "The Adventures of Nick and Sam," the Perry twins are celebrating Lent at school, at church, and with their family. The family discusses what they will be giving up for Lent, and Nick and Sam experience some struggles with their choices throughout the Lenten season. A new boy, Riley, joins their class. Lent is a time to find the joy of God’s light in even the darkest moments of the forty days following Ash Wednesday. It is a time to seek the joy in life and the gifts of God’s grace as we prepare to celebrate the death and resurrection of the Lord.

      Conversation with Christ: Jesus, give me the grace to begin this Lent with great enthusiasm and love. Help me live it with joy, knowing that I am living it in your presence to please you and you alone. Resolution: I will make a Lenten program of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Prayerful reflection throughout Lent prepares Catholics for the joy of Easter, and our books are ready for the journey! We offer spiritual reading, guides to the Way of the Cross, and children’s activity and picture books to support your family’s faith.

    “Christ’s love so wishes our joy that it is ruthless against everything in us that diminishes our joy.” That’s what Lent is really about. It’s a time to be ruthless against everything that diminishes our joy. While it may feel easy to pile on guilt on this day and in this season, to heap on more reasons why you might consider yourself.   Lent and Joy. Posted on March 6, read the Book of Esther, which is admittedly a bit risqué. Esther is ultimately victorious: new life for the oppressed and preview of Easter joy! Even in still-wintry climates, the days grow longer. We appreciate the extra daylight and look harder for the first hints of spring: crocuses, warmer.
