Entering the Desert of Lent

Source: Bishop Robert Barron on YouTube

With the beginning of Lent right around the corner, Bishop Barron talks about this ancient period of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving in preparation for Easter, and offer several recommendations on how to have a more spiritually powerful Lent.

A listener asks: If God made us in his image, and the family is composed of a husband, wife and children, then is there a motherly dimension in God?
