Ever thought of waking up in the middle of the night like a monk to pray Matins, sleeping on the floor or putting a pebble in your shoe? Why would you do these things? Lent is upon us. Prepare yourself.
St. Teresa of Calcutta
The Church of the Poor
Pope Francis has laid out his vision of the Church as “a field hospital after battle” that is dedicated to healing wounds. The Pope wants a Church that is welcoming to everyone and that is inclusive. He preaches mercy and openness in charity, with a vision toward salvation in Christ.
