Dear brothers and sisters, every moment of our life is a time for believing, hoping and loving. The call to experience Lent as a journey of conversion, prayer and sharing of our goods, helps us – as communities and as individuals – to revive the faith that comes from the Living Christ, the hope inspired by the breath of the Holy Spirit, and the love flowing from the merciful heart of the Father.
May Mary, Mother of the Saviour, ever faithful at the foot of the cross and in the heart of the Church sustain us with her loving presence.
May the blessing of the risen Lord accompany all of us on our journey towards the light of Easter.
From the message of Pope Francis for Lent 2021
