This year, Pope Francis has chosen the Book of Exodus as the focal point for his Lenten message, highlighting the theme “Through the Desert God Leads Us to Freedom.”

Lent, traditionally a time of personal reflection and spiritual growth, becomes an opportune moment to heed the Pope’s call.

He aims to encourage us by highlighting that the Lenten season is a transformative journey towards spiritual renewal and ultimate freedom. He asks us open our eyes to the realities of our world, respond to the cries of those in need, and actively participate in the transformative pillars of Lent—prayer, almsgiving, and fasting.

Using the resources below, let’s collectively embrace this call to action, making Lent 2024 a shared endeavor to foster community and work towards societal betterment.
