Prayer is one of the three pillars of Lenten practice. Through prayer, we raise our hearts and minds to God in thanksgiving and praise. Prayer is our “vital and personal relationship with the true and living God.” During Lent, we place special emphasis on prayer and contemplation on the Passion and Death of our Lord through expressions of popular piety such as the Via Crucis (Stations of the Cross) and veneration of the Crucified Christ. Find a variety of resources here for Lenten prayer and contemplation.
Take a 30-minute retreat each Sunday during Lent with one of our United States bishops as they reflect on the readings for the Lenten Sundays.
