As we approach Lent, the period from Ash Wednesday (Feb 14) and Easter (Apr 1), Pope Francis calls us to pray more. “By devoting more time to prayer, we enable our hearts to root out our secret lies and forms of self-deception, and then to find the consolation God offers.” Give up some screen time, and try some soul time.
