Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. For forty days, we accompany Jesus on his passionate journey to Calvary and give witness to the mercy he showed despite his suffering. Like Jesus, we try to show mercy to others, just as God shows us mercy. During these 40 days, let us take time to reflect on our lives and say sorry for any wrongdoing. This repentance and reflection help to lead us towards a meaningful Easter. Lent is a time of hope as we renew our relationship with God.
God of all peoples and nations,
As you accompany us on our Lenten journey,
May our fasting strengthen our commitment to live in solidarity,
Our almsgiving be an act of justice,
And our prayers anchor us in love and compassion.
Awaken our hearts and minds that we may be one human family
As we all go further together.
We ask this in Jesus’ name,

This year's theme, “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world,” celebrates the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and highlights the gaps that remain.
