“Return to Me with all your heart.” Joel 2:12

“With its invitations to conversion, Lent comes providentially to awaken us, to rouse us from torpor, from the risk of moving forward by inertia. The exhortation which the Lord addresses to us through the prophet Joel is strong and clear. Why must we return to God? Because something is not right in us, not right in society, not right in the Church and we need to change and give it a new direction. This is called needing to convert! Once again Lent reminds us that it is possible to create something new within ourselves and around us, simply because God is faithful, always faithful, for God cannot deny himself. God continues to be rich in goodness and mercy, and God is always ready to forgive and start afresh. With this filial confidence, let us set out on the journey!” Pope Francis
