“This is my 66th Lenten season, but boy oh boy, it was a season like none I ever experienced before. I always thought that I was a staunch Catholic who understood my faith and my God. How wrong I was. As I journeyed each day through the Lenten Companion, I felt myself truly connecting with my God. In fact, there were times when the emotions within ran so high, I cried. I am not the same person who started this journey on Ash Wednesday. I feel like a caterpillar who has shed its cocoon; I feel lighter, freer, happier with how I see myself. I feel so much closer to my God, but I know that my journey has only just begun. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I am forever changed.

Changed My Heart

This devotional was the piece I was looking for to bring me closer to our Lord. I am forever changed. This touched my heart and soul each day as I read and prayed. I will order every version. Take the time to dive into this, you won’t regret it. I am so grateful for discovering this.

“This is my third lent using the Lenten Companion, and I would never go through Lent or Advent without them. Fr. Toups challenges you to a closer relationship with Jesus but at the same time he leads you into that relationship. It is so thought provoking and encourages you to continue on with deepening your relationship with Christ.”

"This Lenten Companion was truly a tool God used to give me complete healing. The presence and intervention of the Holy Spirit was felt all through. Every meditation and exercise was filled with redemptive power. Each week built up to what God wanted to accomplish at the end. This companion was truly an answer for my life and healing journey. Everyday God used the meditations and scripture, to talk to me directly.   These companions have been a big tool to bring lots of fruit to my life. This companion can truly be a before and after in your life."
