The Holy Season of Lent is upon us. And still, we find ourselves dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic. I guess we could see the mask wearing and the social distancing and all the other things that we have had to do or not do during this past year as part of our Lenten penance.
The weekend we remember that Jesus went out into the desert and fasted and prayed for 40 days and nights. Maybe that is what we should do – see our COVID-19 sufferings as our desert this year. And just maybe we need to pray and fast more during the next 40 days and nights.
