The McGirr programme is pure joy. Clear as crystal, sacred as bread, and breaks open the gospels in a way that feeds the hungers in us all.
Former Director Catholic Adult Education, Sydney
Lent is a time for repentance, spiritual growth and reflection. For the new Lenten season of 2019, Garratt Publishing is very proud to announce a new addition to our Lenten Program, All I Have is Yours: Forty Days to Freedom by Michael McGirr.
The forty days of Lent prepare us to celebrate again the death and resurrection of Jesus, the heart of our faith and the source of our freedom. Throughout that time we too pray for the kind of freedom that allows God to work in our lives and the world: freedom from fear, freedom to forgive and, above all, freedom to love.
Author, Michael McGirr, asks us to consider that choosing what we do in our lives is really about choosing the kind of people we want to be. His selection of readings, gospel, prayers and personal reflections are underpinned by commentary that questions and prompts the reader, offering a Lenten program that will nourish and encourage important conversation.
Inspiring photography and design enhance the reflections and highlight key teaching points and question prompts.
