2023 Lenten Calendar

17 February 2023|JRS/IO & JRS/USA|Spiritual Reflection and Resources

Current global challenges are weakening efforts to ensure peace in our societies, while provoking new conflicts and tensions. Forcibly displaced people are among the most affected by these unstable situations. They are increasingly marginalised, with their needs neglected, and their voices unheard. 

Pope Francis reminds us that “God’s plan is essentially inclusive and gives priority to those living on the existential peripheries. Among them are many migrants and refugees, displaced persons, and victims of trafficking. The Kingdom of God is to be built with them, for without them it would not be the Kingdom that God wants.”  

This Lent, we invite you to join JRS in responding to Pope Francis’s call as we reflect on building a future where no one is excluded. Download our Lenten calendar to reflect, pray, and take action to build a world where no one is excluded.
