E-mail Print PDF

In 2017, the Message of Pope Francis for Lent is "The Word is a gift. Other persons are a gift." Based on the parable of the rich man and Lazarus (cf. Luke 16:19-31), the Holy Father invites Catholics to find "inspiration in this meaningful story, for it provides a key to understanding what we need to do in order to attain true happiness and eternal life. It exhorts us to sincere conversion."
