DESERT // LENT D::11
[ READING :: Mark 1 ]
Read Mark chapter 1 but focus in on these verses; v.9-13, 35-36.
“The great joy of the Saharan novitiate is the solitude, and the joy of solitude -- silence, true silence, which penetrates everywhere and invades one’s whole being, speaking to the soul with wonderful new strength unknown to men to whom this silence means nothing.”
-- From Letters From The Desert by Carlo Carretto
Here are a few more verses from the Gospel of Luke that helped me to think about desert life today. Luke 1:80 // 3:1-6 // 4:1-2
? Is there a way to take advantage of your desert wilderness moments?
