GENERAL AUDIENCE: On Lent, Journey of Hope

‘Lent is the sacramental sign of our journey from slavery to freedom, ever to be renewed — a journey that is certainly demanding, as it is right that it should be, because love is demanding, but it is a journey full of hope.

Pope’s Message for Lent 2017

‘May the Holy Spirit lead us on a true journey of conversion, so that we can rediscover the gift of God’s word, be purified of the sin that blinds us, and serve Christ, [Who is] present in our brothers and sisters in need.’
