Episode 2 -Crossing the Desert: Lent and Conversion – “The Desert of Ordinary Life”.
The only location for God to interact with us is deep within the ordinariness of our days. We are called to cherish the ordinary day, not because of its routine or common features, but because within this daily forum God reaches us through others, through worship, charity, and our relational commitments. Our daily lives carry an invitation from God to become morally good and holy; it is the only medium through which this invitation can come. Cherish the days.Keating, James (2012-07-20).
