On the first Sunday of Lent, we hear in the gospel that Jesus went to the desert and was tempted by the devil. What is your desert experience as you embark on your Lenten journey? In solitude and desolation, God often becomes most present in our lives. Only in totally surrendering ourselves completely to God can we be fully open to receive the grace and strength we need.
The reflection today is a bit longer but I hope it will help you take some quiet time today as you contemplate the spiritual journey you seek this Lent.
