Lent is a time of encounter.

Through prayer, we encounter Christ, present in the face of every member of our human family.

Through fasting, we encounter the obstacles that prevent us from loving God and neighbor.

Through almsgiving, we encounter our brothers and sisters around the world, sharing God’s gifts with others.

Who is my neighbor?
