Today we begin our Lenten journey. With our eyes fixed on Jesus, and in the midst of all this uncertainty, we are called to live lives of sincere faith, living hope and effective charity. In the silence of our hearts, let us reflect on the way and person of Jesus, renew ourselves in His love, and recommit to the path of discipleship.

'Now, now – it is the Lord who speaks – come back to me with all your heart.' (Joel 2:12)
