Lent & Holy Week at St. Matthew's

February 5, 2024

"It is time to act, and in Lent, to act also means to pause. To pause in prayer, in order to receive the word of God, to pause like the Samaritan in the presence of a wounded brother or sister. Love of God and love of neighbour are one love. " (Pope Francis, Message for Lent 2024)
