Great Lent

  • "Forty days separate us from Easter, this is a powerful time in the liturgical year, and it is a special time that is given to us to look, with greater commitment, to our conversion, to listen more attentively to the Word of God, a time for prayer and penance – of opening our hearts to the workings of Divine will, for a more generous practice of mortification, thanks to which we can be more attentive to neighbours in need: it is a spiritual journey that prepares us to relive the Paschal Mystery" — Lent, a testing time for genuine conversion, a joyous journey towards Easter, says Pope.

  • "Faith gives strength to solve every problem, whereas those who would deny faith and hope tend towards discouragement, which is a negative force that destroys human life" — Patriarch Kirill and the Russian Orthodox start the ‘Great Fast’.
