Thought I'd open a thread for folks to post Lenten reading material. I'll start with this one:

Meditations for Lent, by St. Thomas Aquinas (PDF file)
Given that the Mass is the Sacrifice of Calvary re-presented in an unbloody manner, and the Blessed Sacrament has been studied and found to be flesh belonging to a man in agony in Eucharistic miracles: Eucharistic Miracles by Joan Carroll Cruz

For these listed below, I have not read them, but they seem like solid Lenten reading.
