Three Disciplines for Lent from Bp. Grafton


In his book, A Catholic Atlas or Digest of Catholic Theology, Bp. Charles Grafton of Fond Du Lac, the leader of the Catholic Movement in the Episcopal Church in his day, commends to us in Lent the mediation on our Lord's victory over his temptations, meditating that

"I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me."

and recommends the three disciplines of
(1) Fasting,
(2) withdrawal from the world,
(3) prayer.

It is the second which struck me as being of particular importance in our time.

(p. 229)
