"In the desert we'll meet a God who is love, through and through." Fr. Robert Barron
Fr. Robert Barron, author of "Catholicism" is offering daily Lent reflections from Ash Wednesday (March 5) until Easter Sunday (April 20), You can sign up at LentReflections.com.
Here is a sample from yesterday's email:
In its simplest terms, Lent is the season when we refocus ourselves on the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many saints have described it as an apprenticeship to Jesus in the desert. We go with the Lord into the wilderness, and we watch him at close quarters, imitating him, seeing what he saw, enduring what he endured.
Holy people in the biblical tradition--Moses, Elijah, John the Baptist, even Jesus himself--spent time in the harshness of the desert before they embarked upon their missions. The desert is a place of clarification. Stripped down, undistracted, simplified, we are able to align ourselves to God.
Each day's mail which may include videos, will focus on a particular theme:
This is our place to share and dialogue. We welcome you to tell us what you think!
