A season for doing
· Pope Francis calls Lent a time for conversion and solidarity ·
The season of Lent is “a favourable time to overcome our existential alienation by listening to God’s word and by practising the works of mercy”. In his Message for Lent Pope Francis invites Christians to prepare for Easter of this Jubilee Year. A season to live “more intensely as a privileged moment to celebrate and experience God's mercy”.
“God's mercy”, the Pope emphasized, “transforms human hearts; it enables us, through the experience of a faithful love, to become merciful in turn. In an ever new miracle, divine mercy shines forth in our lives, inspiring each of us to love our neighbour and to devote ourselves to what the Church’s tradition calls the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. These works remind us that faith finds expression in concrete everyday actions meant to help our neighbours in body and spirit: by feeding, visiting, comforting and instructing them”.
