Lent 2020 prayers
23 January 2020
Our beautiful Lenten prayers and reflections offer you the opportunity to reflect on your own or in your parish.
We pray that we may allow our hearts to be touched this Lent by the cry of our sisters and brothers living in poverty.
Our Lent calendar is designed to accompany you on your spiritual journey, with daily prayers and meditations from Ash Wednesday to Holy Week. Give yourself some quiet time for reflection each day to draw closer to God in prayer.
In Pope Francis's words, Lent is a perfect time to pause, and "leave behind the unrest and commotion that fill the soul".
Say our Lent 2020 prayer during Lent, asking God, who heals the brokenhearted, to revive the weary, restore the broken and renew the face of the Earth. Find a text only version of the Lent prayer to print for groups or for personal prayer time away from a screen.
Use our intercessions in your parish for Sundays in Lent, and keep our brothers and sisters throughout the world in your prayers.
Stations of the Cross
Meditate on Christ’s journey to the cross, following themes of justice, poverty, mercy, friendship and hope. Accompanied by powerful images from around the world, our Stations of the Cross are perfect to use in your parish or community, or as a private devotional journey for Lent.
Thank you for your kind generosity and for your prayers, which are at the heart of all we do.
