It begins a time of fasting and abstinence, prayer and sacrifice. I think of Jesus spending these 40 days in the desert, being tempted and jeered by an evil being, and I realize how much easier it is for us. I used to think….well, Jesus was divine so it mustn't have been that difficult….But he was also human, so he felt the loneliness, exhaustion, temptations just as we do.
How do we deal with our desert moments? Can we learn from Him who has come to save us?
I wish you peace and guidance on your journey ….
