Book suggests exploring Lent through the senses

Review by Neva Rae Fox
I was taught the significance and a deep appreciation of Lent as a young girl attending Catholic elementary school. Ever since, I annually approach Lent with the commitment and respect that bespeaks of the 40 days of penance and reflection.
For many years, I, like thousands of others, gave up something for Lent, ranging from sweets to smoking to a memorable Lent as a teen when I gave up Cheese Doodles (that was a sacrifice!). My observances for Lent modified over the years, and for the past two decades I have taken on self-improvement reading, ranging from an examination of St. Paul and Islam to books by Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Thomas Merton. Of late, I have been searching for a new way to observe the 40 days of penance, and I am delighted to have discovered it in a compact book, “Sense and Sensibility.”
