Title: Lent with Pope Benedict XVI: Meditations for Everyday 

Editor: Jeanne Kun 

Goodreads Plot: In short reflections – one for each of the forty days of Lent and the octave of Easter – the Holy Father reminds us that only Christ can fill the deepest longings of our heart. Throughout our Lenten journey, Pope Benedict helps us drink deeply from the well of Scripture in order to lead us to an encoutner with the crucified and risen Christ. This is a compilation of addresses given by Pope Benedict. 

My Thoughts: I absolutely ADORED this book. I will pretty much read anything by Papa Benny (aka Pope Benedict XVI). These daily mediations were small enough to not be too overwhelming, but they were deep enough to really make you think about the message for the day. Each meditation was no more than two pages. I could read other books along side of this book. Papa Benny really knows his stuff when it comes to scripture and spirituality. I will definitely read this every lent. Highly recommend this book if you are Catholic or are interested in Catholicism. This book would also make a great gift.
