Pope Francis - Lent 2

Here is another of Pope Francis' recommendations for Lent:


For Lent, Pope Francis has created an initiative called “24 Hours for the Lord.” He wants it celebrated on the Friday and Saturday preceding the Fourth Week of Lent in every diocese around the world, and it involves - as the name suggest - an uninterrupted 24 hours of open confessionals:

"So many people, including young people, are returning to the Sacrament of Reconciliation; through this experience they are rediscovering a path back to the Lord, living a moment of intense prayer and finding meaning in their lives. Let us place the Sacrament of Reconciliation at the centre once more in such a way that it will enable people to touch the grandeur of God’s mercy with their own hands. For every penitent, it will be a source of true interior peace."
