US Bishops Give Internet Lenten Tools

WASHINGTON, D.C., FEB. 25, 2009 (Zenit.org).- The U.S. bishops' conference is offering resources on their Web site to help people live the Lenten season that begins today.

The site focuses on themes from the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults, including what we believe, what we celebrate, how we live and how we pray. It includes teaching on prayer, the sacraments and the passion and resurrection of Christ.

It offers video meditations, using pictures of the crucified Christ and Michelangelo's Pieta, as well as an audio podcast based on Pope John Paul II's Stations of the Cross.

It features a video and a question-and-answer section about the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. The bishops offer daily meditations, in text, audio and video segments, as well as other resources for deepening in prayer and sacramental life.
