“Let us not forget that real poverty hurts: no self-denial is real without this dimension of penance.” (Pope Francis, Message for Lent, 2014)
Pray in solidarity with refugees around the world with this prayer from Catholic Relief Services.
When confronted with your own weakness during Lent, don’t give in to anger, frustration, and self-pity. Be patient and see yourself as God does, with unconditional love.
