"Ut Amore Amoris Tui": the Franciscan friars and the daily Resurrection

For the start of Lent, a time of reflection and conversion in preparation for Easter, the Custody of the Holy Land is launching the project"Ut Amore Amoris Tui" ("For the Love of Your Love"), to accompany faithful all over the world along the Lenten path.

In six different videos, published on the Custody’s social media pages, some of the friars who live and serve every day in the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre will tell us about the daily events in the holiest place in Christianity. There will be different topics: from the morning liturgies to how the place is cared for, as well as stories on the everyday relations with the different confessions that live in the Basilica, and a special in-depth look at the brotherhood that dwells inside the holy walls guarding the place where the Son of God returned to life three days after his death.

"Ut Amore Amoris Tui" (from the "Absorbeat" prayer, attributed to St Francis) has as its objective to tell people how the Franciscan friars of the Holy Land live in contact with the mystery of the Resurrection, in the place where the Easter of the Lord is celebrated every day. The appointment is every Friday in Lent on the social pages of the Custody (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), to walk together in this important time of the liturgical year.
