Jesus, about to transition from the hidden mission of home to the public mission of proclaiming the Good News of God’s love, was drawn to pray and fast for 40 days in the desert. The desert. Why would Jesus go there – on purpose? Why does he invite us to join him there every Lent? And how do we do this?
The resources below offer perspective on the “desert” practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving; as well as give ideas for how to live them — individually or as families. We trust the Lord, by the power of his Resurrection, will bless our desert sojourn with newness of life and renewed energy for our own mission, even in pandemic.
So. . . live this Lent. . . and journey with others, sharing on our other social media platforms.
A guide to figuring out your own Lent this year — with explanations for the “why” behind some of our traditions as well as simple ideas for “how.”
