There are numerous online programs
offering spiritual enrichment during Lent.

Check out some of the following:

Deacon Michael’s book, The Via Dolorosa: A Forensic and Spiritual Treatise on the Salvific Work of Jesus Christ, provides a learning, emotional, and spiritual experience for the reader. “Through the use of the actual sites on the Via Dolorosa the reader can be drawn into the events of Calvary and share in the devotion embraced by millions of pilgrims over the centuries.” For more information click here.

If you are looking for spiritual materials for Lent – books, music, materials for children – check the list from the Association of Catholic Publishers here.

Loyola Press offers a printable Lenten Calendar for Families with simple ways to practice prayer, fasting, and almsgiving as a family.

My Catholic Life! offers daily prayers, reflections and books you may find helpful as you seek to make the most out of this Lenten season.  God can and will do glorious things in your life if you let Him!

Daily reflections beginning with Ash Wednesday may be found here.

Praying Lent is an extensive collection of Lenten Resources including articles, daily prayers, book groups, and contemplations on the scripture readings.

Do you like to post pictures to social media? If so, join the Busted Halo InstaLent Photo Challenge throughout the Season of Lent (until Easter). Lent is a time to reflect and draw closer to God, so we hope to do just that with the creative ideas for photo-sharing we’ll provide each day. Get ready and get creative! Your Instagram feed is about to look a whole lot like Lent!

Reflect each day during Lent with the Scripture-based inspiration of Living Lent Daily, an email series. We’ve invited authors and other friends to share reflections based on Bible verses featured in our 3-minute Retreats. Other resources from Loyola Press may be found here.
