Lent is a favourable time for showing concern for others by small yet concrete signs of our belonging to the one human family.
— Pope Francis

Solidarity Bridge Lenten Prayer

God of all people,

Your compassion invites us to be transformed, 
Your love calls us to be one human family, 
Your wisdom invites us to journey through this season
     with open hearts. 

Let us Pray for our brothers and sisters, near and far, 
     drawing us closer to those in need of your healing touch. 
Let us Fast from that which cannot nourish our
     deepest longings,
     a fasting that gives life to us and others. 
Let us Give generously of ourselves, 
     sharing your abundant gifts with those in need. 

May the journey of Lent be a time of renewal and growth
      so that with changed hearts, we might heal and transform
      your world. 

Amen. 


Since 1999, more than 400 medical missioners have contributed their time, resources and skills through Solidarity Bridge Mission Trips. They have partnered with committed Bolivian professionals to advance the health and well-being of persons with scant economic resources, particularly those needing surgery. By building bridges of solidarity, the hearts and lives of missioners, patients and families are changed and transformed through this mission of healing.
