Feast Day in the Lenten Journey

Spirituality
Ugh.  Today's scripture is the story of Jesus in the desert from Luke 4:1-13.  It is ironic that this was chosen for today's reading because I chose it for a reading on Thursday, except the Matthew version!  Along with the reading came a request to notice what is stirring up in us.  Well, I dreamed a dream last night...sigh.  It is a clear indication of what is stirred up in me.  So I meditated on my dream instead since I already did lectio on the desert scripture.   Meditation of Jesus in the desert As Jesus was in the desert, the Matthew version says, "He was hungry."  It is an unfamiliar image to view Jesus as hungry.  Conclusion?  Jesus was hungry, therefore, God wants. How can a perfect being want?  If perfect, would God not be complete?  If complete, would God then need not
