The fifth Sunday of Lent is the tradition when Development and Peace proclaims its social justice message. This year the symbols remind us of the Amazon region and the challenges the people there are facing. The symbols used on March 29 at the Abbey include a burnt branch, a feather, a pot of soil with some stones and a plant.
