Jesus went to the desert. Just like Jesus, everyone needs a place where they can be alone. The desert (and retreats) are the place where the devil meets us. There is nothing to distract or entertain us, especially when there is no phone signal. The devil is not in the persona of the horns, tail and trident. Rather, the devil signifies that which is the opposite of goodness and kindness. The devil is all about evil intent and destruction. This Lent, make some time with your devices off, in a space of no distraction and reflect upon your life.
