“The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert, and he remained in the desert for forty days.”
Forty days!—a very long time to be alone in the desert!!
Endeavor to take one day at a time, one step at a time on your Lenten journey, not looking to the 40th day; look only upon your journey with Jesus TODAY.
Remember that God graces you in the present moment for the present moment.
Heritage word—“Let us go on from day to day, leaving the next day in the hands of the good God.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
