Renew within me a steadfast spirit.
Psalm 51:12 (Ash Wednesday)

“Our call to love [is] one that transcends all prejudices,
all historical and cultural barriers, all petty interests.”
Fratelli Tutti 83

During Lent, in these turbulent times, how can we persevere in our work for justice with a steadfast spirit, rooted in love?

Join writers from the Jesuit and broader Catholic network as we seek to answer this question, renewing each day throughout Lent our commitment to care for both our fellow human beings and our common home.
