From the Bishops, Daily Inspiration for Your Lenten Journey

The penitential season of Lent is an opportunity to grow in holiness and grace.  As we look forward  to Ash Wednesday, are you seeking inspiration to help you grow closer to God?

For Lent 2014, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops has released a helpful calendar which offers inspiration from Pope Francis, as well as advice and ideas for observing Lent in our homes and our parishes.

Click here to access the full calendar, including daily links to stories of saints, homilies, prayers and information, and an audio retreat.

    Kathy, when I open the calendar the hyperlinks don’t work. Even when I go to the USCCB website directly and open the calendar, the hyperlinks don’t work.

      Hmm…. I only tested one link, but it did work just fine. I will check with Sr. Mary Ann Walsh at USCCB to see whether that’s going to be fixed.
