During his pontificate, Pope Francis has described Lent in many ways — as a time of recovery, renewal and conversion, a time to receive the love of God and rediscover the direction of life. In his Lenten message for 2021 the Holy Father reflected, “In our Lenten journey towards Easter, let us remember the One who ‘humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross’ (Phil 2:8). During this season of conversion, let us renew our faith, draw from the ‘living water’ of hope, and receive with open hearts the love of God, who makes us brothers and sisters in Christ.” Looking forward, this 40-day season of prayer, fasting and almsgiving begins again on Ash Wednesday, March 2, 2022, and ends at sundown on Holy Thursday, April 14, 2022.
