Week 2 for Water: Waters of Baptism, Water of Life

This week, Anne Louise Mahoney reflects upon the symbolism of the drained baptismal font in her parish during the seven weeks of Lent.  The water is replaced with sand and rocks as a reminder that we are in a time of desert. 

I am prompted to face the desert areas in my own life – dried-up relationships, destructive habits, empty prayer, selfishness, pride, lack of compassion. I linger reluctantly in that barren place, trying to rediscover what is life giving.”
