Lent 2017 prayers

1 March 2017

Lent is a favourable season for opening the doors to all those in need and recognising in them the face of Christ. 

Pope Francis

Our beautiful Lenten prayers offer you the opportunity to reflect on your own or in your parish. We pray that we may open our hearts to our sisters and brothers around the world this Lent.

Lenten reflections

Our Lent calendar is designed to accompany you on your spiritual journey, with Catholic daily prayers and meditations from Ash Wednesday to Holy Week. Follow our Lenten reflections and draw closer in prayer to some of the world’s poorest communities.

We pray especially for Florence in Zambia. After her husband passed away, Florence struggled to feed and clothe her children. But thanks to your support and the help of CAFOD’s partner, she owns a small fish farm and is able to provide for her family.

We also remember Patrick, a 23-year-old whose father died when he was a small child. Life was once a daily struggle, but today he is living life to the full. With the help of the Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, Patrick is working as a tailor and sharing his skills with people living with disabilities.

Stations of the Cross

Go deeper and meditate on Christ’s journey to the cross with our sisters and brothers in Zambia. Our Stations of the Cross reflection is perfect to use in your parish or community, or as private Lent devotional prayer.

Thank you for your kind generosity, and for your prayers which are at the heart of all we do.
