OK, so Lent Madness got you pumped up about saints now. There are lots of places to read more.
- Butler’s Lives of the Saints is the classic, and it’s in public domain.
- Lesser Feasts and Fasts — another classic that includes readings, collects and brief biographies.
- Holy Women, Holy Men is a collection of biographies and prayers for saints in the calendar of the Episcopal Church — including lots of “trial use” commemorations. Be warned: one of the members of the Lent Madness Executive Committee does not like this book, but you might enjoy it!
- Brightest and Best by Sam Portaro is a companion to the official book of saints in the Episcopal Church.
- Can You Find the Saints? Introducing Your Child to Holy Men and Women is a fun book for kids.
If 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 Disciples on the Way. Experience a Lenten journey that will prepare you to walk throughout your life as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Carol Mead reflects on discipleship and the season in these daily meditations for the forty days of Lent.
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.
