Here’s a link to my latest piece at One Peter Five: “‘He Was Led By the Spirit into the Desert: The Mystical Context of Curial Politics’“. It picks up on things I discussed in my last post there, but delves into some (for me, at least) remarkable spiritual and liturgical lessons.
“The observance of Lent is the very badge of the Christian warfare.” — Pope Benedict XIV
Gloomy reading and happy Lent! (Or maybe I have that backwards?)
