In the face of so many wounds that hurt us and could lead to a hardness of heart, we are called to dive into the sea of prayer, which is the sea of the boundless love of God, in order to experience his tenderness.“– Pope Francis

Lent is a season of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends at sundown on Holy Thursday. It’s a time of preparation to celebrate the Lord’s Resurrection at Easter. During Lent, we seek the Lord in prayer by reading Scripture, fasting, and giving alms. Like Jesus’ time in the desert, the season of Lent is just the beginning of our journey.

We created this Lenten calendar – filled with beautiful reflections and important reminders – to guide you as you make your way toward the joy and hope of Easter.
