The liturgical year

In the season of Lent we are invited to pause and reflect about the way we live our lives, how we treat others and how we relate to God. Prayer, charity and fasting are essential elements for making Lent a fruitful experience. All three want to help you advance in your relationship with God.

Using your phone may help you to pray and to direct your attention to God! The DeoQuest app can help you. Take time for prayer regularly by making it a habit, just as charity and fasting. If you do so with all your heart, you will find your way to live this hopeful season.

During the season of Lent you are invited to fast, making extra time for prayer and acts of charity. If your phone makes it easier for you to pray, feel free to use it for that purpose.
