2019 Ash Wednesday Message



Today, the first day of Lent, we start preparing to journey with Jesus to Jerusalem where He will show His love for God the Father and for us until the end. It is difficult to travel with heavy bags and baggages. Like Jesus, let us travel light. Let us share what we have with the poor through acts of justice and charity called almsgiving. Let s take care of our health, our hungry neighbors and creation by restraining our appetite through fasting. Let us cast on the Lord our burdens in the spirit of faith and hope through prayer. Almsgiving, fasting and prayer will help us leave behind unnecessary bags and baggages on our Lenten journey with Jesus. Our Mother Mary will accompany us. 


Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle
Archbishop of Manila
