Lent 2018: Raise Up, Sacrifice, Offer! 

Daily Inspiration for your Lenten Journey, February 14 – April 1

During Lent, take inspiration from the words of St. Paul (2 Cor 8:9), and contemplate his invitation to live a life of evangelical poverty. Embrace the Lord's call to being the blessed poor by "sacrificing" material things, including food, superfluous to your basic needs; "offering" charitable gifts directed to helping and caring for others; and "raising up" those in need through praying for them and by participating in devotional practices.

Fortify your Lenten journey with the words of the church fathers and Pope Francis featured on this calendar, and contemplate the suggestions for prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Print the calendar in English and Spanish and post it in a prominent place to remind you of your commitment to raise up, sacrifice, and offer, during this Lent.
