Pope Benedict XVI's message for Lent is that when people are open to God's love, then they can "love with him, in him and like him."
"When we make room for the love of God, then we become like him, sharing in his own charity," said the Pope in his annual message for Lent.
"If we open ourselves to his love, we allow him to live in us and to bring us to love with him, in him and like him," said the pontiff.
Pope Benedict's message is titled, "Believing in charity calls forth charity." It was released Feb. 1 with a media event at the Holy See's press office.
