MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS FOR LENT 2017
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Lent is a new beginning, a path leading to the certain goal of Easter, Christ’s victory over death. This season urgently calls us to conversion.
Now, I’m Xaverian Missionary Sister FOREVER. The story of my vocation is really interesting; it is completely God’s project. Let me share it with you!
“Easter is not only once a year, but every day because the Lord passes and stops at the door of our heart to talk and to listen to us. Let us not go Him without draw from the font of His Merciful Kindness, without offer to Him the most loved things, without donate to Him the most intimate affections of our heart.
“In the Paschal Mystery, it is Jesus who in his Passion and death offers himself to the Father. The Father accepts Jesus sufferings and gives him a sign in the gift of his Resurrection. For this reason the Paschal Mystery is a mystery of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus.
From the first dramatic moments after the execution of our Sisters we have all shared the sensation that the evil had taken possession of the spirits of those who projected and perpetrated this terrible crime.
At Kamenge in Burundi, A Memorial Day.
I 'm still asking myself this again after four months of conversation with a public transport driver.
