I saw a review of the book Lent with Pope Benedict XVI: Meditations for Every Day just recently, and then I saw it in the bookstore yesterday so I bought it.

There are many “daily reflection” books available, but this one stands out for me.  We are blessed to have Benedict XVI as our Pope, and he is a wonderful teacher of the faith.  This book allows the reader to be fed on the riches of that teaching.  The sample for each day of Lent is only about two pages and provides plenty of material to meditate on.

This book would be useful for anyone to use as spiritual reading for Lent, or as food for meditation in your daily prayer or holy hour.  It will also be useful for preachers.  It may even whet your appetite to delve more into the rich spiritual teaching of Benedict XVI.
