Lent 2016

We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you, because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

Lent 2016: “I Desire Mercy” (Matthew 9:13)

It is with these words from the Holy Gospel of Matthew that our Holy Father, Pope Francis, presents his 2016 Lenten Message to the world. Our Holy Father writes, “The season of Lent in this Jubilee Year is a favorable time to overcome our existential alienation by listening to God’s word and by practicing the works of mercy. In the Corporal Works of Mercy we touch the flesh of Christ in our brothers and sisters who need to be fed, clothed, sheltered, visited; in the spiritual works of mercy – counsel, instruction, forgiveness, admonishment and prayer – we touch more directly our own sinfulness. The corporal and spiritual works of mercy must never be separated. Let us not waste this season of Lent, so favorable a time for conversion!”

Taking this great message of Pope Francis to action, St. Joan of Arc will provide many opportunities for us as a community and as individuals to renew ourselves during Lent 2016 in order to Desire Mercy – both corporal and spiritual works of mercy.

We are encouraging every one “….Make Sacrifice and DO Something and Make This Your Best Lent Ever”!

If you have been away from the Church – we welcome you to St. Joan of Arc! Please know that we miss you and nothing can keep you from the love of Jesus! Our door is always open – please call the parish office at 765-865-9964.
