Thought for Lent

Easter imagePope Francis’ Message for Lent 2017 

The theme of Pope Francis’ message for Lent 2017 is ‘The Word is a gift. Other persons are a gift’. In his message Pope Francis says, “Lent is a new beginning, a path leading to the certain goal of Easter, Christ’s victory over death. This season urgently calls us to conversion. Christians are asked to return to God “with all their hearts” (Joel 2:12), to refuse to settle for mediocrity and to grow in friendship with the Lord. Jesus is the faithful friend who never abandons us. Even when we sin, he patiently awaits our return; by that patient expectation, he shows us his readiness to forgive (cf. Homily, 8 January 2016).
