Made for Heaven: Second Week of Lent

family prayer  |  Lent activities  |  Lent books

On the second Sunday of Lent, we read the story of Jesus’ Transfiguration. In the Transfiguration, we see Jesus’ appearance changed, but even more astoundingly we see Peter’s transformation in which he attunes his will to God’s will putting aside his own selfish desires. How will you let the Lord transform you this Lent?



Join Fr. Agustino Torres, CFR—founder of Corazón Puro—on a multimedia Lenten journey inspired by St. Francis. Begin the season with a vow of poverty and end at Easter with a heart free from the desert of sin and open to love, serve, and care for others.

Made for Heaven features stunning original art by Valerie Delgado of Pax.Valerie, along with daily meditations on a passage from scripture, reflection questions, prayer, and space for journaling and notetaking.

A life of simplicity and poverty orients you toward God’s love and reminds you that you are made for heaven. Torres says the best way to prepare yourself for that final destination is to live as true pilgrims who need to “travel lightly” and detach from earthly pleasures.

Made for Heaven is perfect for both individual and group use. Free companion videos and a downloadable leader’s guide are available at avemariapress.com. The book and other resources are also available in Spanish.

Look for the Made for Heaven videos on each Sunday in Lent, here on CatholicMom.com at 10 AM Eastern.

Ask for Made for Heaven at your local Catholic bookstore, or order from Amazon.com or Ave Maria Press. Bulk discounts are available for your parish, book club, or prayer group when you purchase the book from Ave Maria Press.



Creados para el cielo: Segunda semana de cuaresma

El Segundo Domingo de Cuaresma leemos la historia de la Transfiguración de Jesús. En la Transfiguración vemos el cambio de apariencia de Jesús, pero aún más sorprendentemente vemos la transformación de Pedro en la que sintoniza su voluntad con la voluntad de Dios, dejando de lado sus propios deseos egoístas. ¿Cómo dejarás que el Señor te transforme esta Cuaresma?
