Lent is the 40-day season of preparation for Easter that ends on Holy Thursday, three days before Easter Sunday. During Lent, Catholics recall their baptism and do penance – fasting, prayer, and almsgiving — as they commemorate the death and resurrection of Christ. Lent is a good time for personal and community renewal, as it leads us to the paschal mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.


Through the Desert God Leads us to Freedom

Pope Francis’s Lenten message for 2024 underscores the theme of liberation, drawing parallels between the Exodus story and contemporary struggles for freedom. Emphasizing the importance of listening to the cries of the oppressed and confronting personal and societal idols, the Pope calls for a Lent marked by prayer, fasting, and communal action. He envisions Lent as a season of renewal and hope, inviting believers to embark on a journey toward genuine freedom and solidarity.
