Travel the Landscapes of Lent
From the desolation of the desert to the busyness of crowded towns to the solitude of a mountain top, the Sunday Gospels of Lent invite us to travel through rich landscapes full of challenge and potential, where the story of creation reveals the story of God.
This Lent, we invite you to come with us on pilgrimage to these Gospel places. Every week, a new voice from our community of Ignatian writers will guide you along the way, sharing stories and reflections from their own experiences of encountering God in places similar to those found in the Gospel stories.
You will receive a reflection every Monday morning of Lent, along with the readings and questions for your own personal or communal prayer. Click on this link to get started! https://www.jesuits.org/traveling-the-landscapes-of-lent-a-digital-pilgrimage-with-christ-to-the-cross/

2024 Laudato Si’ Lent Calendar
Lent is a special time for reflection and action through prayer, fasting and almsgiving, and this year we propose you to live it deeply with the theme "Listen to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor" (Laudato Si’ 49).
We invite you to share this experience with us using the Lent Calendar that the Eco Conversion team has especially prepared: a combination of Gospel reflections and regional calls to action, linking the contemplative spirit of Lent with the need for ecological conversion through repentance, reflection and reconciliation.
