...when required to say at home

Lent lasts 40 days and reminds us of the 40 days when Our Lord  went off into the desert where he was tempted by the devil.  It was time for him to reflect and focus on what he was do and no doubt to pray.

The current coronavirus situation calls on us to enter isolation, not in the desert it is true, but in our own homes.  However, like Jesus we are cut off from our every day life and that is our opportunity to reflect on our lives and to pray.  Our sojourn may be more than 40 days but however long it is it is a chance to think, pray and reset our lives.  Lord help me to think and pray as you thought and prayed and to reject the temptations of the world and the devil.
