Any Spiritual Reading for this Lenten Season?

It is available at Amazon. This is not the only listing for it, however.

There's also an e-book of it here that you can read for free:

At the top right, where the Tools icon is, if you click that, there's an option that lets you rotate the page until the text faces the right way; it's sideways until you do that.
My favorite Lenten  re- read  is "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ"  from the visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich. 
Every Lent I read through Pius Parsch's Year of Grace Volume on Lent.  Has 3-5 pages a day on the day's liturgy.  Can't recommend it enough:

I "liked," but a shout-out to GloriaTibiDomine, for alerting us to this, as I was looking for Lenten reading.  It led me also to another book of his which I hadn't known about.  (I read Imitation as a teenager and, like many other people, assumed it was his only writing.)
On The Passions and Repentance

The daily readings from Scripture.

Thirty Steps To Heaven

I struggle mightily with Great Lent.  Always have, no matter how much or how little I "do'.  I always come away from it unsatisfied, frustrated, feeling not quite a kind of spiritual emptiness but something akin to that.  It's difficult to describe.  I'm always glad once the Lenten season and Pascha are over and done with. :crazy: :Hmm:
I usually read through "The Sermons of St. Francis de Sales for Lent" that can be purchased in paperback and kindle format on Amazon. The book provides a series of sermons for certain days of lent (ash Wednesday, first Sunday of Lent etc.) I would note that the sermons are not for everyday and are all quite dense, so that should be noted depending on how one prefers to do their spiritual reading. I usually have other shorter material for daily meditation that I will put to the side on days where one of his sermons apply. I've done this every lent for the past three or four years and I'm always surprised how much new insight I am able to acquire from Geneva's most famous Bishop. On more then one occasion I have thrown out something I have picked up from a sermon in that book and inadvertently made myself appear far wiser then I could ever hope to be.
