Papal Message for Lent 2009

The message of Pope Benedict XVI for Lent 2009 is available on the Vatican Web site at

The following scripture verse is the one he chose to introduce us to the topic in his message:

"He fasted for forty days and forty nights,
and afterwards he was hungry"
(Mt 4,1-2)

The focus of Pope Benedict's message is indeed on fasting and the meaning and importance of fasting during the Lenten season. It is a short text and a good reflection on this first day of Lent.
