24 Hours for the Lord

“Do we ever conduct an examination of conscience in order to see if we too, at times, might be annoying to others? It’s easy to point a finger against the faults and shortcomings of others, but we must learn to put ourselves in their shoes.” — Pope Francis

Pope Francis initiated this special time a few years ago to focus Lenten prayer and practice on encouraging people to encounter God through examination of conscience and making sacramental confession.
