Savage, the book Living Lent With Mercy will touch your heart, prompt deep reflection and spark a desire to grow closer to the Lord, one day at a time.48 pages, (PF4) $1.49 PF4

Reflect on the powerful words of Pope Francis, and the accompanying Scripture, prayer, and actions every day of the Lenten and Easter season. Make the journey from suffering toward the healing and transformation found in the Resurrection. (G2968)128-page paperback $11.99
