A Lenten Ascent through Purgatory

Three other people want to read through the Purgatorio this Lent, so I went ahead and started the blog. (Heather and Lasselanta, would you email me your addresses, so I can add you as blog authors? jessica *dot* snell *at* gmail *dot* com) You can see the blog here.

For those interested in reading along but not posting, feel free to just read and/or comment as you please. If you decide at some point you want to join, just let me know.

If you're thinking about it but hesitating, let me encourage you to join. We'll only be doing 5 cantos a week, which adds up to, oh, less than 30 pages of reading per week? I think? and it's short little bits of verse, not page-edge-to-page-edge reading. And you don't have to post a long reaction or essay. You can even just post the quotations that stood out to you the most that week. Email me or comment if you want to be added to the blog.

Anyway, this project has it's own blog, but I'll probably cross-post every week or so with the interesting bits. :)

Peace of Christ to you,

Jessica Snell

Jessica,
What a genius idea! I'd love to join but will be off the web for Lent... but I'll pray for you all to receive from it exactly what the Spirit has for you! I look forward to back-reading it during Easter!
