Dr. Edward Sri explains that Lent is our forty days in the desert with Jesus. The New Testament roots of Lent lie in Jesus’ forty days of fasting in the desert, and his forty days were prefigured by the Jews forty years of wandering in the desert.
This Lent, God is testing our hearts. He wants to make sure there is room for him to dwell. Dr. Sri shows us that there are three proven, saint-tested ways to make room for Jesus in our hearts this Lent: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
This Lent, don’t be afraid to follow Jesus into the desert.
