“Faith finds expression in concrete everyday actions meant to help our neighbors in body and spirit,” the pope said in his message for Lent, which begins Feb. 10 for Latin-rite Catholics.
Feeding the hungry, visiting the sick, welcoming strangers, offering instruction, giving comfort—“on such things will we be judged,” the pope wrote in the message, which was released at the Vatican Jan. 26.
Particularly during the Year of Mercy, he said, Catholics are called to recognize their own need for God’s mercy, the greatness of God’s love seen in the death and resurrection of Christ and the obligation to assist others by communicating God’s love and mercy through words and deeds.
