Great things have their beginnings in the desert, in silence, in poverty. It is not possible to share in the mission of Jesus, in the mission of the Gospel, without sharing in the desert experience, its poverty, its hunger. That beautiful hunger for justice of which the Lord speaks in the Sermon on the Mount cannot be born in the fulness of satiety... And let us not forget that for Jesus the desert did not end with those forty days. His final, extreme, desert was to be that of Psalm 22: "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" And from that desert sprang up the waters of the life of the world.”  –Then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Journey to Easter
