Following is a summary of Pope Francis message for Lent 2024
In the journey of faith, God consistently reveals Himself as a beacon of freedom, guiding His people from bondage to liberation. As we embark on the Lenten season, we reflect on the profound message of deliverance encapsulated in the Exodus narrative. This journey through the desert symbolizes our passage from slavery to freedom, inviting us to leave behind the chains of oppression and embrace the promise of renewal.
As we traverse the desert of Lent, may we heed the call to conversion and freedom. Let us open our hearts to the cries of the oppressed, break the idols that entrap us, and embrace the communal decisions that lead to societal transformation. In this season of grace, may prayer, almsgiving, and fasting become not merely rituals but expressions of our genuine desire for spiritual renewal and societal justice. Let Lent be a time of courageous hope, birthing a new chapter of history where faith, charity, and freedom lead us towards a brighter tomorrow.
