Let Lent 2020 change you

 2020.08.MAIN BLOG IMAGE

You are most likely aware that Lent starts tomorrow. And perhaps you have already considered what you want to take on or give up in order to strengthen your relationship with Jesus as we again prepare to celebrate the great mystery of his death and resurrection.

Whether you have or haven’t, Pope Francis has just released his Lenten message for this year, and it is filled with pearls of wisdom which may just inspire you as you consider what Lent will look like for you this year.

He invites all of us to allow ourselves to be led like Israel into the desert (cf. Hos 2:14), so that we can at last hear our Spouse’s voice and allow it to resound ever more deeply within us. What a beautiful invitation which we are called to respond to – to allow Lent to be a time where we connect with the one who loves us more than we can imagine in a far deeper way than ever before.

But that is enough from me… have a read of all Pope Francis has to say for yourself and be inspired!

PS – It is a 3-5 minute read!
