Lent is a Season of Reflection and Preparation

before the celebration of Easter.
By observing the 40 days of Lent,
We replicate Jesus-Christ's sacrifice and
withdrawal into the desert for 40 days.

Latest News and Events

5th Sunday of Lent - 18 March 2018 - Jn 12,20-33
"Unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds."
Jesus, in this text does not express the meaning of his life. Only by dying can it bear fruit, it can fulfill its mission. We are also called to bear fruit, to give life on a daily basis, through small actions, which may seem insignificant, but if they are done with love, they gain a sense of salvation. It is the time to die to give life and life in abundance."

5º domingo de Cuaresma - 18 marzo 2018 - Jn 12,20-33
"Si el grano de trigo cae en tierra y mueve, da mucho fruto". Jesús, en este texto no expresa el sentido de su vida. Sólo muriendo puede dar fruto, puede cumplir su misión. Nosotros también estamos ilamados a dar fruto, a entregar la vida en el dia a dia, a través de pequenas acciones, que pueden parecer insignificantes,pero si están hechas con carino, cobran sentido de salvaciíon. Es el tiempo de morir para daar vida y ævida en abundancia".

5ème dimanche de Carême - 18 mars 2018 Jn 12,20-33
"Si le grain de blé tombé en terre ne meurt pas, il reste seul ; mais s’il meurt, il porte beaucoup de fruit."
Jésus, dans ce texte n'exprime pas le sens de sa vie. Ce n'est qu'en mourant qu'elle peut porter ses fruits, elle peut remplir sa mission. Nous sommes aussi appelés à porter des fruits, à donner la vie au jour le jour, à travers de petites actions, qui peuvent sembler insignifiantes, mais si elles sont faites avec amour, elles acquièrent un sentiment de salut. Il est temps de mourir pour donner la vie et la vie en abondance. "
