Lent 2023, Week 1: Preparation

Lent preparation

"Even now, says the LORD,
return to me with your whole heart,
with fasting, and weeping, and mourning;
Rend your hearts, not your garments,
and return to the LORD, your God."  (Joel 2:12-13)

Welcome to Lent 2023!

As we enter into this sacred season of preparation and repentance, A Nun's Life has developed a trove of resources for you to read, listen to, pray about, and meditate on. Each week, we'll share with you a full slate of resources designed especially for that week! (Can't wait for what's coming up next?? Click here to download the complete Lenten calendar.)

Keep reading for a list of resources for this first, short week of Lent -- and check back throughout the week, as we add more resources. Together, let us begin our Lenten journey to draw closer to God!
