40 Days Lenten Journey Feedback.
Having gone with the Lord Jesus Christ on the 40 days Lenten Program. These are the experiences many people who participated in the program can share to us .
We can see their experiences, the positive impacts of the Lenten program, the testimonies, the positive and negative experiences, challenges and difficulties they had during the Lenten program.
We can also read what they said about the daily Lenten reflections, the daily videos and the prayers.
You can read most of these experiences, the challenges, difficulties, and testimonies also at the comment sections. Take time and go through them. The essence of this, is to inspire and encourage souls who always tempted to lose faith in God. Among them are:
- Nancy Said
Father I started with 21 days novena before the 40 days Lenten novena
My prayer life greatly increased,I spent less time on my phone and more time with God
During the forty days novena ,My generator tripped off and I went out to check only to realize that the whole fuel that was filled in the tank was on the floor in the balcony and the generator just tripped off,this happened two separate times,yet no fire ,nothing happened.I thank God for divine protection.
Also my husband and I were on third mainland bridge when the car in front of us suddenly stepped on his brakes and God saved us from accident as we were on speed but luckily and avoid hitting the car intent off us with that speed the next lane was clear,so he was able to swerve.
My husband also got divine connection but that one I will come back with the testimony after it has been perfected.Thank you Father Sanctus for this beautiful opportunity,it’s been a game changer.
The 40days Lenten journey was indeed a wonderful experience for me. I felt the presence of God in me, each time I fall I’m always quick to return back to my God.
It started firstly with negative experience, different kinds of temptations and trials just to discourage me from joining the 40days prayer but thanks to God I continued.
During the journey I felt God’s presence all over me, my needs and that of my family are always provided even though sometimes delayed with temptations and different trials, but the good thing is that I never gave up on my God.
But towards the end of the journey I became weak in saying my prayers, reading the daily breakfast but I never gave up on visiting Jesus in the blessed sacrament.
In a nutshell, I will say it was a wonderful experience for me to journey with Jesus in this year’s 40days Lenten prayer. I really learnt a lot, thank you Father Mario. God bless you for us.
Let me begin by giving immense thanks to God Almighty and Our Mother, Mary, for opening my eyes and equally sustaining me throughout the period of this year’s Lenten Journey.
Special thanks to Fr Sanctus Mario for his selfless and unalloyed service and dedication.
Am equally grateful to our strong Admins for their updates and guidance.
-Increased Devotion to God and our Mother Mary
-It enabled me to observe this year’s lent as if it were my last.
-My feeling of being spiritually stagnant was continuously dropped as my urge to watch movies was reduced.
-My belief in some workings of God in my life deepened.
– My sensitivity to committing sin and offending my God or people I come in contact with was heightened. I remained in a state of grace throughout the period and up till date.
-I enjoyed being with Jesus in contemplative Presence in the Blessed Sacrament.
-I really felt the Presence of Jesus as I experienced His different Appearances and Manifestations in my life.
-I enjoyed a full dose of Life in the Spirit and I got spiritual Renewal.
-I engaged in the practice of some Virtues and His Attributes such as Humility, Patience, Meekness, Charity, and Mercy to others; I easily let go of my misgivings.
-unshakable faith and more deepened Relationship with God
-stronger belief and trust in and better appreciation of Who and What God is for me and my family.
I enjoyed stable health all through.
-God gradually saw me through my financial difficulties tro’ regular surprises ; He kept sending me “messiahs” at the nick of time and never allowed me to be weighed down by my family problems.
-my daughter narrowly escaped rupture of her uterus and other satanic exploits and was safely delivered of a bouncing baby boy on Sunday, 20 March.
-I Held on to fasting, abstinence and self-denial/mortification in order to atone for my sins without my ulcer rearing it’s ugly face.
– no serious challenges except that sometimes, it was not possible for me to carry out some of the daily spiritual activities like visiting the orphanage, helping out/counseling couples with marital issues due to the fact that i changed location to a completely strange/unfamiliar place where am taking care of my daughter that gave birth tro’ CS.
Sometimes, I had to break the prayers in phases or rush them in order to beat the time.
– I must confess; I am not good at reading my Bible but I was forced to during this program and I really enjoyed it.
Fr Sanctus is really one of a kind. All his Breakfast with the Word and other reflections are superb; so spiritually uplifting, informative and enriching that I can’t easily say which one is the best now.
As for Evening Spiritual Talks, they’re all nice. I particularly enjoyed the Final Blessing which was so charismatic.
I can never thank Fr Sanctus Mario enough for what he’s doing in people’s lives and for his managerial ability. I really look forward to more Spiritual Programs as one doesn’t need any dull moments considering the way things are going in the world today.
Thank you, Fr Sanctus! May the good Lord always be with you and with the Home of Victory family as we continue to seek His face and do His bidding. Amen!

Good morning Father, I want to use this medium to share my experience during this 40 days prayer. I will say this is my best Lenten season though I had difficulty in business as if that period was the worst but when I want to ponder on it, I will remember what father always says, the road might be difficult, you are doing it for yourself not for God, you are healing your soul. Go close to God to know him not for worldly things.so all those words in breakfast with the lord always echo in my mind when I feel is not work but this was my best because it makes me to really understand Lenten season, the suffering Jesus undergo and how I contributes to it in everyday of my life. Also I will testify that things changed after Easter then I got to understand what He meant by the will of the Father is the best. The breakfast with God helped my spiritual life also. The voice echoed always to my ears as if someone was speaking to me. Thank you father for using this medium to speak to souls
The 40 days Lenten Prayer journey was a very wonderful experience to me. Though I missed a few days due to tight schedules, the other days I participated in were awesome. To be honest, my intentions were granted during the journey while some are still in the course of being granted.
One significant thing that happened to me during the journey was that I made a Withdrawal transaction through a POS, was debited but the transaction was not successful in the POS and I was not paid. I waited for the money to be reverted for one week but all to no avail. I decided to add it to my intentions, hoping in the agonizing Jesus and seeking the Blessed Mary and St. Anthony of Padua’s intercessions. Lo and behold, after two weeks, I received a receipt from my bank that the transaction was successful with the details of the POS Agent. I went to the agent with the receipt, she took it to her bank and it was confirmed successful. Later, she refunded me without me being stressed nor having any misunderstanding with her. To God be the glory.
Thank you Father Sanctus and your admins for the prayer avenues you create for the members of this group. They are really helpful. May your priestly anointing never run dry, Amen

Good Morning Fr.
I participated in the 40 days Lenten Journey. It really helped me get closer to God, though it was not easy but I was very happy I did till the end. I also realised that once u decided to create time for God, God will be closer to you and have time for you too.
2ndly, it also helped to be able to say 10 decades of the rosary daily no matter how busy I am, I must say it before the whole day runs out.
3rdly, I can not stay comfortable without receiving the Holy Eucharist whenever I attend masses either Sundays or weekdays.
4thly when I fall short(commit sin) I felt I had betrayed God, something had died in me. I always feel unhappy until I reconcile back to God through the sacrament confession.
Finally, honestly this was the first time in my life I had participated fully on a lenten journey with the lord. I am very grateful to be part of this group because my spiritual life has improved. I can say my rosary daily now with a minimum of 10 decades.
Thanks for father for what God is using you to do.

This year’s Lenten season is the most impactful one I have ever had. My work is a very demanding one and makes it almost impossible for me to concentrate and pray during the day.
The way you arranged the spiritual activities was highly helpful. My relationship with God became closer. It got me glued to it that any day I didn’t do the activities before close of work. I feel so guilty and empty and I must do it before midnight. I also made a resolve not to miss any day and God in his infinite mercy led me through.
Though the period was so challenging for me. I know that our God is too faithful to fail. I am looking forward to joining in the May devotion with even more zeal.

My experience with this Lenten Program was wonderful, It was quite inspiring and motivating, my Bible study improved tremendously, the explanations of the Word of
God was & penetrates the mind, My Testimony is that My family relationship improved positively,
The challenges I got was that due to my tight work schedule, I did not visit the Blessed Sacrament regularly but I daily followed the program till the end. Indeed I can’t totally explain my innermost Satisfaction & rest having learnt so much in Our relationship with God.
I am so much grateful & I appreciate the opportunity God gave me to be part of this Soul Medical Centre, God Bless the Rev Fathers who dedicate their time, energy & intellectual abilities to improve Us Spirituality, To other individual Organisers, May Almighty God bless You immensely.To God be the Glory
- Umeh Chidera Theresa says: My experience is that during the Lenten period temptations came my way but with the help of God I was able to overcome them. And God answered my prayers…. In fact my mouth is full of testimonies… I Thank the most high God for his blessings in my life and my family….
- James Mailoushi: To God be the glory! The 40 days Lenten Journey with our Lord Jesus Christ was full of life experience, both rough and smooth. Rough experiences were noticed from little trials and temptations from people. Smooth experience encountered from the soul-lifting reflections, prayers and messages of hope. It was an awesome outing with the Lord Jesus Christ. Remain blessed to the glory of God Fr., for such initiative.
