Daily Traditional Lenten Meditation on the Carmel Books Blog

First Saturday Reminder 

From next week Carmel Books will be providing a traditional daily Lenten meditation on the blog, so be sure to check it every day as this particular meditation truly does help encourage a very fruitful Lent.

These daily meditations are taken from the out-of-print book Practical Meditations For Every Day in the Year on the Life of Our Lord Jesus Christ, which was composed chiefly for the use of religious by a Father of the Society of Jesus, and translated from French and published in England in 1868.

It's a truly wonderful book that we hope to bring back into print sometime in the future.

"Though primarily intended for Religious, the devout layman will find the practical meditations a most serviceable and bracing form of spiritual exercise amounting in fact to something like the daily practice of a Retreat".

  1. This book was re-printed by Burns and Oates in 1961 and 1962 and was still available and in print for a long time, I bought one in the Catholic Truth Society shop in 1984.It was in the excellent Golden Book series and I would have thought fairly easy to find.
