Pope Francis presides over Ash Wednesday Mass at the Basilica of Santa Sabina in Rome on Feb. 14.

Pope Francis said that Lent is a time to share our deepest desires, worries and weaknesses with the Lord in prayer: ‘Let us make space for the prayer of silent adoration, in which we experience the presence of the Lord like Moses, like Elijah, like Mary, like Jesus.’
