Pope Francis On Lent

The Holy Father’s Lenten Message calls each of us to imitate Christ more zealously: “In imitation of our Master, we Christians are called to confront the poverty of our brothers and sisters, to touch it, to make it our own and to take practical steps to alleviate it.” Pope Francis observes that poverty is not the same as destitution: “…destitution is poverty without faith, without support, without hope.” Some challenging reflections as we begin Lent; may each of you have a faith-filled and transforming Lenten journey this year.
