"Lent is like a long 'retreat' during which we can turn back into ourselves and listen to the voice of God, in order to defeat the temptations of the Evil One. It is a period of spiritual 'combat' which we must experience alongside Jesus, not with pride and presumption, but using the arms of faith: prayer, listening to the word of God and penance. In this way we will be able to celebrate Easter in truth, ready to renew the promises of our Baptism".

~ Pope Benedict XVI

Pope Benedict XVI's theme for Lent 2012 is "Let us be concerned for each other, to stir a response in love and good works" (Heb 10:24). Read his message for Lent.
