Mercy not Sacrifice: Lent 2016

Papal audience

I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.” (Mt. 9:13)

In his message for Lent 2016, Pope Francis asked that “the season of Lent in this Jubilee Year be lived more intensely as a privileged moment to celebrate and experience in God’s mercy.”

As we celebrate the Year of Mercy and the season of Lent, let us focus on mercy and not sacrifice.

As “God’s mercy transforms human hearts,” may our hearts do the same. Let us always remember to show our dear neighbor compassion and forgiveness.

We hope you join us for daily Lenten reflections, beginning Wednesday, February 10. A quick video, song or image may be just the thing you need to recharge or reflect.
