“The Lenten season offers us once again an opportunity to reflect upon the very heart of Christian life: charity. This is a favourable time to renew our journey of faith, both as individuals and as a community, with the help of the Word of God and the sacraments. This journey is one marked by prayer and sharing, silence and fasting, in anticipation of the joy of Easter” (Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Benedict XVI).
May this prayer, in the words of Pope Benedict XVI, lead us to pray from the bottom of our hearts.
