Explore the contents of Pope Francis’s message for Lent

On this year’s Lenten journey, the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development wishes to explore the contents of Pope Francis’s message for Lent, in order to offer the Churches around the world an aid to live their Transfiguration in a practical way.  

This will happen through a figurative journey in steps, inspired by the allegory of Lenten ascesis as a mountain trek, offered by the Holy Father. Beginning on Ash Wednesday, every week, on the Dicastery website and social media, a new pathway step has been presented, accompanying us throughout the Lenten journey, until Easter, for a total of seven steps.  

Each stage combines prominent moments of mountain hiking with quotations of the message, proposing, therefore, points for reflection, individual or as a group, for a journey of Lenten ascesis, which should be synodal too.
