Book Review: The Sacred Heart For Lent

When it comes to Lent having a book with daily meditations has become a must have item for me.  I like books of that nature because they do a good job at centering my focus on Lent.  This year Fr. Williams' The Sacred Heart for Lent will be the book that will accompany me through Lent.

I was intrigued by this book when I initially picked it up.  I'm aware of the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, but I'm not particularly familiar with it.  After reading through several of the meditations in this book I found my self drawn to it and wanting to know more about the Sacred Heart devotion.

The book is very simple in it's format. For every day there is a scripture entry, followed by a reflection and a short prayer focused on the Sacred Heart.  The reflections in this book really resonated with me.  After reading just a few of the daily reflections I knew I had found the book I wanted for Lent.

Overall, I recommend this book to anyone who's looking for a good Lenten read that will encourage you to take a better look at yourself and also draw you closer to the Sacred Heart.

I was provided with a review copy of The Sacred Heart for Lentby the publisher, Servant Books, in exchange for my honest review.
