Reading the Church Fathers during Lent

Ash Wednesday is observed next Wednesday, Feb 6. iMonk has linked to a site that gives us readings from the Fathers for each day of Lent. Click here. I will be adopting this discipline for the Lent season. In my reading of the Fathers it is my observation that it was a full meal they prepared for the church – no ten easy steps, no user-friendly sermons, no ten minutes homilies. My impression is that they had a sense of guarding the deposit of truth entrusted to them, even as Paul encourages Timothy to guard the Gospel.
