Love is a gift from God: ‘We love because he first loved us’ (Jn 4:19). In his document on love in the family Amoris Laetitia, Pope Francis teaches us that love must go beyond our own desires. He tells us that ‘generously serving others is far nobler than loving ourselves’ (101). Each year, Christians from around the world celebrate Lent in preparation for Easter. In our Catholic school communities Lent has come to be synonymous with the arrival of the annual Trócaire Box. As part of Moment Three of the Catholic Schools Week programme, Catholic schools are invited to participate in the Trócaire Lenten Campaign.
