Sister Lisa Maurer – Out in the Desert

Out in the desert is one of the great themes of Lent. The Gospel reading for the first Sunday of Lent always finds Jesus in the desert, where for 40 days he fasted and was tempted. This Lent, once again, the Lord is inviting us to go out in the desert with him.  For these 40 days, Jesus wants us to leave the status quo of our daily, mundane existence so that he can manifest his love, his power, and his intimate presence in our lives.Out in the desert is where we will experience our own weakness.  Out in the desert is where we will experience a need for God.  Out in the desert God wants to show us in a new and powerful way that we are loved and desired.  Out in the desert we will learn that God is our consolation and strength.So here we are once again in the season of Lent.  It is time to go out in the desert…

“Listen carefully, my child, to your master's precepts, and incline the ear of your heart. Receive willingly and carry out effectively your loving father's advice, that by the labor of obedience you may return to Him from whom you had departed by the sloth of disobedience.”
–St. Benedict of Nursia, The Rule of Saint Benedict
