Lent is a time to shed lazy, un-Christian habits and snap out of one's apathy toward people harmed by violence, poverty and not having God in their lives, Pope Francis said.
Lent is time to "change course, to recover the ability to respond to the reality of evil that always challenges us."
The Chicago-Detroit Jesuit province is teaming up with Loyola Productions' online IN Network for a seven-part Lenten film series to make its debut on seven Wednesdays in Lent, starting with Ash Wednesday.
The episodes will highlight Lenten themes and foster reflection and conversation. Questions for reflection and commentary are also offered.
