Lent--the time of preparation for Easter when we commemorate the 40 days and nights Jesus spent fasting in the desert before beginning his public ministry--is just a few days away. Are you ready? 

I hope that Lent is a time of true encounter for you, where in your prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, you come to meet Jesus in new and deeper ways. In the Old Testament, Jerusalem is considered to be the "place of encounter," the place where God would come to meet his people. It is deeply profound, then, that our Lenten journey will culminate in Jerusalem, where Jesus experienced his passion, death, and resurrection. I pray that Lent prepares you well to encounter our risen Lord on Easter.
