We just launched a Facebook Messenger bot that could change your life

Hoping for a real change this Lent, but skeptical due to past year’s unimpressive results? Well, we have good news for you.

Yesterday, we launched a Facebook Messenger bot that will help you make this Lent the best of your life.

By subscribing to the bot, you will be offered a Lenten challenge each day. It’s up to you to accept it.

The challenges — sometimes unexpected and surprising — will invite you to live this Lent as the path to meet Jesus at His cross, and find there the gift of His very life, the fulfillment of your longing for happiness.

God wants nothing less than your whole heart. Our Aleteia bot will help you to give Him what He wants, in ways that you could not imagine.

Each challenge will only take a few minutes of your day, but it could definitely change your life.

Are you ready? You can accept the challenge by simply messaging Aleteia through Facebook. You can do this via Aleteia’s Facebook page or find us in Facebook Messenger online or in the app if you have it on your phone.
