“At that time Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. He fasted for forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was hungry.
Gently open yourself to the workings of the Spirit within your soul.
Ask the Spirit to be present to you as continue your fasting, whatever form it takes.
Draw strength from Jesus’ example during your Lenten journey.
Heritage word—When we experience Jesus’ unconditional love for us, we will not only realize conversion but embrace it.
(Sister Constance Marie, 10th Provincial of the Toledo Province)
