Lent Retreat in Daily Living: In the Desert With Jesus – Week 4

Yesterday was the fourth gathering of participants in the Lent Retreat in Daily Living I’m offering this year at UST Law School on the theme In the Desert with Jesus.

During the past week, the participants prayed with passages that reveal hints, some well before we get to Jesus’ final trip toward Jerusalem, that being with Jesus is not all wedding feasts and healings and feeding the multitudes. Hints about what Jesus will face – and about the cost of discipleship.

After some sharing about the fruits of their prayer this past week, I gave a reflection on several episodes the participants will pray with this week, as we walk with Jesus on his final steps toward Jerusalem – looking at what happened to him and his followers in the weeks leading up to the entry into Jerusalem. The three episodes I offered some thoughts about are the Cleansing of the Temple, The Raising of Lazarus, and the Anointing at Bethany.
