Artisans of Reconciliation

March 22, 2017

Pope Francis offers us some thoughts on the Lenten season:

“We know who Jesus is, but maybe we have not met him in person, talked with him, and recognized him as our Savior.

This time of Lent is a good time to approach him, meet him in prayer in a heart to heart conversation, and see his face in the face of a brother or sister suffering,” Pope Francis explained.

By approaching the Lord in prayer and strengthening our personal relationship with him, he said, “We can renew in us the grace of Baptism, quench our thirst at the source of the Word of God and his Holy Spirit; and so discover the joy of becoming artisans of reconciliation and peace tools in everyday life.”
