Preparing for a wonderful family Lent

I’m posting this somewhat belatedly (compared to when it was brought to my attention), but a former member of St. Alexis parish, Dr. Philip Mamalakis, published some suggestions a few years ago on how your family can enjoy the Lenten feast (PDF file).

That’s right. Philip, a professional marriage and family counselor, considers Lent an opportunity to feast on things that strengthen our souls.

Of course, part of the Lenten journey is intensified prayer. Here is a link to another PDF of the Septuagint Psalter, arranged in Kathismas as they are read liturgically. Perhaps you’d like to add a Kathisma of the Psalter to your daily rule of prayer.
