Lenten Message of Pope Francis

"I urge the members of the Church to take up the Lenten journey with enthusiasm, sustained by almsgiving, fasting, and prayer. If, at times, the flame of charity seems to die in our own hearts, know that this is never the case in the heart of God! He constantly gives us a chance to begin loving anew."

Prayer allows us to eradicate “secret lies” and “self-deception,” and we find “the consolation God offers,”

Almsgiving frees us from greed; it helps us regard others as brothers and sisters.

Fasting “weakens our tendency to violence” reviving “our desire to obey God,” who alone can satisfy our hunger.
