Lent is this wonderful time of remembering Jesus’ journey to the Cross and then celebrating his Resurrection. If you have journeyed to Jerusalem and walked the streets as Jesus walked the streets on this way to the Cross, this journey is a reminder of our spiritual journey. As the path is walked, it helps us see our lives in the context of a path, a pilgrimage.
Spiritual journeys are now possible in a virtual format! Recently, a friend shared with me the online Labyrinth that was developed by the people at PROOST…inspiring resources that fuel faith of the United Kingdom.
Here is the introduction to the online labyrinth:

I would encourage you to find a moment in your day, when you have 40 minutes for a quiet, safe place for the intuitive, symbolic mind to be present to your path, your pilgrimage.
Here are some of the responses from the Visitor’s Book by people who have walked the Labyrinth:
Beautiful. I feel I’ve been somewhere… touched the robe of Christ and been recognized!
A completely uplifting and spiritual experience – this is what I came for.
Went to observe – stayed to participate. An amazing journey – no idea how long it took – a lifetime perhaps? Not over yet! Strong sense of journeying with the others in the Labyrinth. A good walk! Thank you for the stillness – for the experience of you and me. Truly God is here.
This magical experience made me totally change the way I will now look at life.
It’s amazing! I felt I was with God for the first time ever. It’s very thought-provoking and I will try to use this experience to change and improve my life.
A peaceful and deep experience in such an amazing setting. The world moved silently by as I explored my inner world – my own unique journey.
If history says I have helped one person to embrace God as you’ve helped me here, I’ll be glad.
Thanks, this has helped me to realize the stresses and strains of work and life – things that seem to surround and engulf me too much.
Words cannot describe my encounter with God through this.
One of the most meaningful experiences of my life. Thank you. Keep on.
Thank you all for providing an appropriate as well as creative ritual for others and myself to commune with God… I was given much insight and freed from much.
May you enjoy a quiet moment with the Lord!
