Pope Francis' message for Lent 2014
As Lent draws near, I would like to offer some helpful thoughts on our path of conversion as individuals and as a community. These insights are inspired by the words of Saint Paul: "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich" (2 Cor 8:9).

Look with favor, Lord
on your household.
through our flesh be humbled
by abstinence from food,
our souls, hungering after you,
may be resplendent in your sight.
--Pope Pius V
"By having reverence for life, we enter into a spiritual relation with the world. By practicing reverence for life, we become go"
