PONTIFICAL COUNCIL for INTERRELIGIOUS DIALOGUE
MESSAGE OF POPE FRANCIS FOR LENT 2018
“Because of the increase of inquity, the love of many will grow cold” (Mt 24:12)
...I would also like my invitation to extend beyond the bounds of the Catholic Church, and to reach all of you, men and women of good will, who are open to hearing God’s voice. Perhaps, like ourselves, you are disturbed by the spread of iniquity in the world, you are concerned about the chill that paralyzes hearts and actions, and you see a weakening in our sense of being members of the one human family. Join us, then, in raising our plea to God, in fasting, and in offering whatever you can to our brothers and sisters in need!
