Bishop Brian Dunn Issues Message for Lent 2014
Message pour le Carême 2014 par Mgr Brian Dunn

Message by Pope Francis for Lent 2014
From the CCCB
In his first Message for Lent since his election as the Bishop of Rome, Pope Francis offers some thoughts on the theme "He became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich (cf. 2 Corinthians 8:9)". In his Message, the Holy Father hopes "this Lenten season find[s] the whole Church ready to bear witness to all those who live in material, moral and spiritual destitution the Gospel message of the merciful love of God our Father, who is ready to embrace everyone in Christ. We can do this to the extent that we imitate Christ who became poor and enriched us by his poverty. Lent is a fitting time for self-denial; we would do well to ask ourselves what we can give up in order to help and enrich others by our own poverty."
Message by Pope Francis for Lent 2014



 

Message by CCCB President for the 2014 Share Lent campaign

durocheLent is a time for transformation, inviting us to look at our own lives and to make changes that bring us closer to God. As we draw closer to God, acting for the good of others, especially the impoverished, becomes ever more natural to us. Thus the call to "repent and believe the Gospel," is not only a personal one but a collective one as well. It is a call to the whole human family.

Saint Kateri Tekawitha
Pray For Us
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta said: "The greatest poverty of mankind is that of not knowing Christ...... "People are hungry for God. People need love. Are we aware of this? Do we know this? Do we see it? Do we have eyes to see it? Often our gaze wanders without settling upon anyone ... As if we are here for nothing more than to pass through this world. We should open our eyes, open our eyes and see."
AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM
"The Lord has the right to be glorified by us at every moment ... So if we waste time we are robbing God of his glory."
- Saint Josemaria Escriva
Keep your eyes on Jesus!
