Matt Talbot - A Lenten Journey

Matt Talbot - A Lenten Journey is a wonderful new resource compiled and edited by Fr. Brian Lawless, Vice Postulator for the cause of the Venerable Matt Talbot, and Caroline Eaton. It can be viewed at http://www.acnireland.org/images/book /matt_talbot _a_lenten journey.pdf.

Fr. Lawless notes the following in the preface: 
‘The journey of life is like a journey through the pages of history. It is our story often dark, through which we are guided by the lights of others who journey with us; some lights brighter than others, each leading to the ultimate source of all light the Son of God, who has risen on high to dispel the darkness of sin and death, Jesus Christ the Lord. We all need lights by our side - people who shine with His light and so guide us along life’s way.
Matt Talbot is one such light.’ 

This "must read" 69 page resource is worthwhile for those who are not yet familiar with Venerable Matt Talbot as well as those who are familiar with him.
