This Lenten devotional, Ashes to Easter, focuses on prayer and poetry as a way to address God in praise and Thanksgiving. The format is straightforward. Each reading begins with a gospel reading, followed by a brief commentary and a refrain taken from the Divine Office, summarizing the core idea of the gospel reading. Following the gospel reading is a poetry reading, a comment on the poem, questions for personal reflection, and a concluding prayer. There is one reading for each day of Lent, commencing with Ash Wednesday and concluding in Easter Sunday.
