«In our Lenten journey towards Easter, let us remember the One who “humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross” (Phil 2:8). During this season of conversion, let us renew our faith, draw from the “living water” of hope, and receive with open hearts the love of God, who makes us brothers and sisters in Christ. At the Easter vigil, we will renew our baptismal promises and experience rebirth as new men and women by the working of the Holy Spirit. This Lenten journey, like the entire pilgrimage of the Christian life, is even now illumined by the light of the resurrection, which inspires the thoughts, attitudes and decisions of the followers of Christ.»
- Faith calls us to accept the truth and testify to it before God and all our brothers and sisters.
- Hope as “living water” enabling us to continue our journey.
- Love, following in the footsteps of Christ, in concern and compassion for all, is the highest expression of our faith and hope.
