CRS Rice Bowl: For Lent, For Life

As we prepare for our 40-day Lenten journey, we can put our faith into action through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. This year, Journey to Three Countries – Guatemala, Rwanda and Bangladesh, and you will learn how to help others through CRS Rice Bowl. When you donate to CRS Rice Bowl, you help transform the world. As we prepare to open our hearts to God and neighbor, let us pray together.

Lord Jesus,
You call us to a conversion of heart during Lent, and you give us the tools to do this through prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
When we pray, help us remember the needs of our sisters and brothers.
When we fast, help us offer our sacrifice in union with you.
When we give, help us recognize our gifts are from you so that we are generous with others.
