Lent 2018

Friday of the Fifth Week of Lent


Today we celebrate the final saint of this Lenten season, St. Turibius of Mogrovejo.


Pope Benedict XVI said of St. Turibius of Mogrovejo, "He was a model of respect for the dignity of every human person, whatever his condition, in this way always seeking to arouse the happiness that comes from experiencing oneself as a true son of God."

—Message, March 23, 2006


Today we pray that we can help build communities in God's vision of justice, just as St. Turibius did.
