Faithful Questions





OK, so Lent Madness got you pumped up about saints now. There are lots of places to read more.


Meeting Jesus on the Margins coverIf you want something a bit less silly than Lent Madness to accompany your journey through Lent, Forward Movement (the official sponsor of Lent Madness) publishes a new book of Lent meditations every year. This year’s book is called Meeting Jesus on the Margins:
Meditations on Matthew 25
. Where do you meet Jesus? In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus urges us to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, welcome the stranger, and visit the prisoners. And in doing so, we meet Jesus. These daily reflections for Lent, offered by well-known faith leaders, provide boots-on-the-ground stories of serving and being served by “the least of these.” The meditations also explore our own hunger, our vulnerabilities, and the times we are imprisoned, either self-imposed or by circumstanc. Authors include Mike Kinman, Becca Stevens, Allison Duvall, Bo Cox, Hugo Olaiz, Lee Anne Reat, and Richelle Thompson.

You can order Meeting Jesus on the Margins as a print book or soon as an ebook for your Kindle, Nook, or Apple iOS device. Just five dollars.

Forward Movement has other Lent resources too. Spend a fortune shopping here, and at least some of the proceeds will be invested in an even bigger, shinier Lent Madness next year.

    In your list of resources, don’t forget the tried and true “Lesser Feasts and Fasts”. Also, Father John-Julian Swanson, OJN has written a book filled with wonderful stories and history of the saints in his book,” Stars in a Dark World”. He has done a wonderful job of making the saints fascinating.

    If you are lazy and want to just click on an image to see what this person was all about, go to the Mission St Clare Facebook page, ( ) and in the photos, click on an interesting one. In the description of each photo, you will find a plethora of information from a variety of sources. P.S. If you “like” the page, I will post a different “Saint of the Day”, (mostly from the Episcopal Calendar,) on your newsfeed every day!

    I keep adding my email address to subscribe hoping to get the matchups in my email. Instead, I have to go to every day. Do you not send out the daily contests? I don’t even get Monday Madness in my email. HELP!
