We read in Scripture that when Jesus died on Good Friday, the skies clouded and darkness fell over the land. This was a symbol of the light (Jesus who said ‘I am the light of the world) withdrawing from the world. Traditionally, Lent has been a time of preparation through fasting and penance before the celebration of Easter, with an emphasis on the darkness. But light and darkness complement one another and both are needed. This retreat will facilitate reflection on both the light and the darkness of the season and of our lives in general.
