The Lenten journey can seem desolate, but in Christ, the desert becomes a place where we are renewed and restored. By obeying God, we move beyond ourselves and receive the grace to love him and others, as our set of stories from our partner Catholic News Service explains.
Transfiguration: An invitation to Lenten obedience and self-denial
The glorious revelation of Christ to his disciples calls us to become new creations by listening to God, submitting to his will, and joyfully serving him.
Lent should not be attempted alone
These 40 days are a time for us to leave our comfort zone, enter the desert and embrace those who are isolated so that we can restore them to the community.
