This is a syndicated post from Divine Office - Liturgy of the Hours of the Roman Catholic Church. [Read the original article...]
“In imitation of our Master, we Christians are called to confront the poverty of our brothers and sisters, to touch it, to make it our own and to take practical steps to alleviate it […] the Church offers her help, her diakonia, in meeting these needs and binding these wounds which disfigure the face of humanity. In the poor and outcast we see Christ’s face; by loving and helping the poor, we love and serve Christ.” (Today’s quote from Pope Francis’ Lenten message)
There are numerous ways in which we can help our brothers and sisters in need. In our Holy Father’s words “the Church offers her help” “in meeting these needs and binding these wounds”. During Lent, our parishes can guide us toward charity work, advise and aid us in our own need for a more rewarding christian life.
Join us and share your thought with others, so we can all draw inspiration from each other, on how we can prepare our hearts, minds and bodies in the Lenten journey toward Easter.
This is a journey none of us should walk alone. We all can help those who need to intensify their prayer life. We offer a bit of help: Divineoffice app is discounted 25% until Ash Wednesday. Here: divine-office.com
