There are an array of books available for Lent. Might I suggest for 2024 The Folly of God – A Journey of The Cross, A Path to Light based on the art and inspiration of Sieger Koder?

Koder was born in Germany and served in the Second War and as a prisoner of war between 1944 and 1945. After the war he studied art in Stuttgart eventually being ordained as a Roman Catholic priest in 1971.

Koder explores the Christian message through his art. The image featured here is taken from a print of one of his works that hangs in the Chaplain’s vestry.

Each picture requires thoughtful prayer and is accompanied by a reflective text. They are not meant to be rushed through. But then neither is Lent if it is to helpful on our Christian journey.

Available from Pauline Books and Media or equivalent in France.
