Lenten (“40 days”) Season:
Pathways, Doors, and Windows
by David Morrison
According to Biblical tradition, Moses stayed on Mount Sinai forty days to receive the Law of the Covenant. Our Lord fasted forty days in the desert before He began his public mission. From the ancient church up to this day, countless Christians all over the world prepare themselves to celebrate the paschal mystery of our Lord’s death and resurrection by entering into this forty day repentant season of humility. We journey in the Spirit with Jesus in His wilderness temptation, His transfiguration, His rejection by the chief priests, His suffering, crucifixion, and burial. As we enter into the spiritual realities of these ever present events in the earthly life of Christ, we experience a profound depth of implosive and explosive joy at His resurrection from the dead.
Join us in our contemplation of Lent. May the Holy Spirit use the scriptures, images, meditations, and prayers to transport you through new passageways, doors, and windows along your interior journey into Christ.
