Spend this Lent and Easter in the good company of popes past and present.
As Pope Clement XIII said in a 1759 encyclical, Easter is the celebration “by which alone the dignity of all other religious occasions is consecrated.”
These reflections, homilies, and special messages from Holy Fathers down through the ages will inspire you toward a good Lent and a joyful Easter!
Each year, we relive the events of what happened 2,000 years ago and we are powerfully reminded of the sacrifice and love of our Lord. As Pope John Paul II said in his 2004 Lenten message: “During Lent, we prepare to relive the Paschal Mystery, which sheds the light of hope upon the whole of our existence, even in its most complex and painful aspects.”
These messages of strength, challenge, and hope are vital for all of the people of God.
