Luke 4: 1-13 We enter into the desert, an image of our Lenten journey. The deserts we face are intense, the ways in which we are all tempted by sin, mistrust and a lack of faith. This is the time of purification and enlightenment for those preparing for baptism. This is our retreat days to prepare ourselves for Easter, the central mystery of our faith.
