Benedict XVI is proposing a journey with the Word of God this Lent and a deepening in the mystery of baptism. The Pope’s Lenten Message was released with a theme from Colossians: “You were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him.” The message offers a reflection for each of the Sunday Gospel readings of the liturgical season.
- Is Lent’s question “What am I going to give up” or “How can these weeks lead me to a deeper understanding of the meaning of Easter?”
- What can I do that will bring me closer to Christ this Lent?
- Will whatever I do bring me close to Christ revealed in “the least”?
