Finding God in the Mess Lenten Read-Along


Join in a special Lenten read-along with Loyola Press. We’ll be reading Finding God in the Mess: Meditations for Mindful Living at a relaxed pace that will give us time to savor what we read during the weeks of Lent.

About the Book

Our busy lives distract us and cause us stress. Technology, media, jobs, family, appointments, hobbies—it can all feel like a mess. How do we carve out time for mindful contemplation and prayer? Finding God in the Mess by Jim Deeds and Brendan McManus, SJ, helps us learn to pause, to take time to be with God, to contemplate our lives, and to recognize God’s presence in all of it, especially the hard times.
