Lent 2017: Give up, Take up, Lift up!
Daily Inspiration for your Lenten Journey, March 1 – April 15 During Lent, take inspiration from the words of St. Paul (2 Cor 8:9), and contemplate his invitation to live a life of evangelical poverty. Embrace the Lord's call to being the blessed poor by "giving up" material things, including food, superfluous to your basic needs; "taking up" charitable habits directed to helping and caring for others; and "lifting up" those in need through giving alms, through praying for them, and by participating in devotional practices.
Fortify your Lenten journey with the words of the church fathers and Pope Francis featured on this calendar, and contemplate the suggestions for prayer, fasting, and almsgiving
