40 Days to Peace and Union with God


In stock

In the tradition of his popular Bible study devotional The Better Part, Fr. John Bartunek, L.C. offers these stirring meditations to guide you in the way of mental prayer—the prayer of the saints. This practical companion will help you actively engage in mental prayer and cultivate a fruitful friendship with Christ. It will also teach you to rest in God’s love and receive healing, grace, peace, and joy during this sacred season.

As Fr. Bartunek breaks open the Scriptures from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, you will grow in reading, meditating upon, absorbing, and applying the Gospels to your life. These brief, power-packed reflections focus on Lenten themes from true fasting and carrying one’s Cross to overcoming fear and temptation and experiencing renewal.

Daily meditation keeps your faith lively, supple, and relevant. It irrigates the soil of your soul, giving you a greater share in the abundant life.
