A Lenten call for conversion

Turn away from sin.jpeg

Pope Francis is calling on the faithful not to let the Lenten season of grace pass in vain, and to live as children of God acknowledging and obeying His law, in particular in regards to our brothers and sisters and to creation. • VATICAN NEWS Feb 26, 2019

The Pope’s Lenten message was released February 26 during a press conference. The theme chosen this year is “For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God” (Rom 8:19) • Read the FULL VATICAN TEXT IN ENGLISH

From Bob Bonnot, AUSCP executive director:
Pope Francis makes an urgent plea in his 2019 Lenten message, calling for conversion. Arthur C. Brooks, in a New York Times opinion piece, adds a particularly American perspective. He calls for a change of heart, a turning away from our culture of contempt. The Brooks column is personal and provocative. A good read and a gentle call to action."

From Christopher Hale, the Francis Project, citing a 2015 essay in Time (and a reference to the pope’s Lenten message in 2015: What are you giving up for Lent? Here is Pope Francis’ idea.
