Have you ever heard about the 40 days in the desert? In the bible it were referring to whenMoses was fleeing with his people out of Egypt and they were wandering 40 days in the desert. It’s was a rough time and they were out of bread and water a lot of the people were complaining because of the children, woman and elders that were tired. Somehow or more to say with God’s help they survived these 40 days.After the desert there was a big treasure waiting them. They’re own promised land.
So in the catholic beliefs you must fast 40 days before east. Representing the sacrifice, the people of God had to go through before they could celebrate their freedom from slavery.
I know there is a lot of people that believe in a higher power but not necessary in the bible and that’s fine. I think that the Divine presence speaks to people in mysterious ways.
Sometimes we have to wonder through a spiritual desert where everything will come up to the surface and we must learn to embrace it so we can grow from it.
Everything has a beginning and an end. In the middle of this period it is tough. In the moment of difficulty, choose peace.
