He will renew your strength,
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring whose water never fails.
— Isaiah 58:11, from the first reading for today

We do not enter into Lent alone, but following the call of God and patterning our time on the days Jesus spent fasting in the desert. How I have felt the support of God renewing my strength during these first days of Lent?

Looking for a way to be more in touch with God this Lent? Consider using a resource like the Irish Jesuits’ Sacred Space for prayer.
