St. Joel - Good Prophet And Saint For Lent
|Getting to Know Joel|
February 2013 Issue of St. Anthony Messenger
If you are looking for something special to do for Lent, consider studying St. Joel's book. There are a total of 73 verses (4 Chapters - but 73 verses) in this Old Testament book, so that would mean 1.8 verses to read each day for 40 days. Not too bad ... and reading just 1 or 2 verses a day would make it more realistic to occasionally take a look at some of the footnotes to help grasp the meaning of Joel's message.
