Lent is 'journey with Jesus across the desert,' Pope tells audience
March 19, 2012
The season of Lent is like “a journey with Jesus across the desert,” Pope Benedict XVI told his Sunday audience on March 18. The Pontiff encouraged the faithful to spend the remaining days of Lent in prayerful reflection, “to listen more—and more closely—to the voice of God, and to unmask the temptations that speak within each of us.”
