This Lent, behold a new creation

 | 

This Lent, the Franciscan Action Network invites you to experience renewal in your relationships with God's creation. Reflections on Sunday readings and suggestions for the practice of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving help prepare for the re-commitment to your baptismal calling at Easter. You can sign up to receive the weekly resource via email at www.franciscanaction.org,
or you can directly view resources at www.franciscanaction.org/lent2010.

For the First Sunday of Lent, there are a variety of liturgical resources, including Prayers of the Faithful, a Final Blessing for Mass, and a bulletin insert text at www.franciscanaction.org/first_sunday_of_lent_2010.
