A new Lent and Easter OCTAVE resource for individuals and groups

Due to unprecedented demand, we were unable to supply everyone with a physical copy of the book. As we want to help more people to “Look to Jesus”, we are giving the pdf version and the podcast as a Lenten gift. We pray this resource draws you more close to Jesus. Have a blessed Lent!

the resource

  • A small book that is easy to carry, and read, while commuting or sitting at home (18cm x 11cm, 128 pages)
  • Daily reflections for Ash Wednesday to Good Friday, Easter Monday to the Second Sunday of Easter
  • For each day there is a double page spread with: the date; a Scripture verse; a short reflection; a quote from Pope Francis; and a short prayer
  • Introduction and ‘how to use this book’
  • At the back of the book there are suggestions for group use and questions for reflection and sharing

Look to Jesus will nourish and nurture prayer each day during Lent and into the first week of Easter.

The daily reflections will invite the reader to contemplate a verse from the Scripture reading of the day. This reflection will be followed by a quote from Pope Francis and a simple prayer.

The daily reflections will only require a few minutes for a person to read, reflect and pray. This Lenten practice will lead the reader into a deeper reflection on their daily life. As they ‘look to Jesus’ – in their families, workplaces and the community – they will walk as ‘missionary disciples’ on the path to Easter, and beyond.
