A guide for those wanting to make the most of Lent. The author takes the reader on a journey through this most important season of the church year as we follow Christ on his way to the Crucifixion and Resurrection. For the journey of Lent this year, Kevin OGorman SMA chose an unusual companion, the Popes Exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate, Rejoice and Be Glad. Few of us rejoice at the coming of Lent, a time we most often associate with abstention and stricture. It easy to imagine the look on the faces of parishioners who are told rejoice, Lent is here! As Kevin OGorman knows, however, Christianity is a religion of the unexpected: the triumph of Good News in bad places. Journeying in Joy and Gladness offers a day-by-day guide to Lent, pairing each day with a reflection on Gaudete et Exsultate. Lent offers us a chance to renew our commitment to lifelong conversion, to strive for changes of mind, body and heart; changes that OGorman and Pope Francis remind us do not come at the cost of happiness but make it possible and give us reason to rejoice. Take Journeying in Joy and Gladness as your companion this Lent and know that each of us is chosen by God to be holy and blameless before him in love. Kevin OGorman SMA is a lecturer in moral theology at the Pontifical University at Saint Patricks College, Maynooth. He is a priest of the Society of African Missions and has published previous titles including Journeying with Mary and Playing and Praying. Journeying in Joy and Gladness is his first book with Messenger Publications.
