Lent Journey to the Foot of the Cross
During Lent, the Church asks us to surrender ourselves to prayer and to the reading of Scripture, to fasting and to giving alms. Pope Francis asks that "the season of Lent in this Jubilee Year be lived more instensely as a privileged moment to celebrate and experience God's mercy." We are asked to devote ourselves to the spiritual and corporal works of mercy that "remind us that faith finds expression in concrete everyday actions meant to help our neighbors in body and spirit."
