      The connections among faithful endurance, spiritual renewal, and baptism in particular are driven home for us each Lent, at the end of which we are called to renew our baptismal vows. In this way, we participate in Christ’s own desert experience, which ended with his own baptism (in the Jordan River of all places).   Time in a spiritual desert can be exhausting, but it doesn’t last forever.
