Lenten Reflections

28 May 2022|Spiritual Reflections

The truth however is that we are all in the same boat and called to work together so that there will be no more walls that separate us, no longer others, but only a single “We,” encompassing all of humanity.
Pope Francis

For the World Day of Migrants and Refugees on September 26, 2021, Pope Francis titled his message “Towards an ever wider We. He invited each of us to counter the false claims of nationalism and individualism that keep the human family separate. This call to an ever wider We offers a profound and inviting challenge to each of us this Lent.

For the next six weeks, we invite you to join the Jesuit Refugee Service as we reflect on this call through the Gospels for each Sunday of Lent. May these reflections help us break through the walls that separate us so that we can become one humanity embraced by Christ.
