Lent is indeed how God draws us home, as individuals.
But, it is also a very communal journey. We never journey alone, no matter how “lonely” we may feel. We are always journeying together. If we can experience our journey in communion with others, it makes it so much clearer that we are on a journey together.
When I can share my experience with even one other close friend, or with my regular Parish community, I can enjoy and share the support and environment that allows grace to flourish.
Let us pray for each other on this journey, especially those who need and desire a change of heart on this pilgrimage to Easter joy.
