CAFOD Lent Fast Day Prayer

Donate to CAFOD’s Fast Day Appeal

Plant in us, Lord, 
seeds of solidarity, 
so that, rejoicing in your gifts, 
we may cherish your presence 
in each other and all creation. 

Root us, Lord, 
in compassion and justice. 
Pour your Spirit down like gentle rain, 
softening our hearts, 
washing away division and selfishness. 

Cultivate in us, Lord, 
attentiveness to your call. 
Give us hope to dream of a better world 
and strength to play our part
to make it a reality. 

Grow in us, Lord, 
your ways of peace and courage,  
so that in this time of Lent,
we may bear witness to your love, 
revealed to us in Jesus.

Lent 2023: Enlarging the Space of Our Tent

This Lent 2023 booklet was written by Fr Dominic Robinson SJ and Colette Joyce from the Westminster Justice and Peace Commission for the Agency for Evangelisation. It is intended for small groups to use for faith sharing and prayer together but it may also be helpful for personal reflection. The resource consists of five 60-90 minute sessions, each focusing on a theme covered by Justice and Peace, including poverty and homelessness, racial justice, care of creation, migrants and refugees, and peace.

This network for all Catholics and our friends who care about creation meets monthly online on the second Monday of the month and also organises other events online and in-person when this is possible. Some events take place jointly with the Northern Dioceses Environment Group, as we all work together to animate the Catholic community in the long-term task of stabilising our climate and protecting our common home.

We are inspired by the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, especially as set out by Pope Francis in the encyclical Laudato Si’, and the teachings on caring for the earth and one another found in Scripture.

Participants include CAFOD and Diocesan staff and volunteers, Laudato Si’ Animators, parishioners, clergy, religious and activists. You are welcome to attend as a one-off or to participate regularly.

The Southern Dioceses are:
Arundel & Brighton, Brentwood, Clifton, East Anglia, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Southwark and Westminster
