Watch: Bishops' prayer for Lent from the Holy Land

Scene from the video

As we journey through Lent having made various achievable (and some fanciful) promises of abstinence, we look to the Holy Land to reflect on Christ's sacrifice and what it means to us. It's a good opportunity to contemplate the region and its people 2,000 years on. We see a land of tension and division, walls and suspicion.

A group of bishops from around the world visited the Holy Land in January 2017. During their visit they said this prayer together.
