In this episode of our Lenten podcast series, Mercy Moments, creator and host, Marissa Flores Madden, prompts listeners to reflect on Christ's flight to the desert – and the corresponding flight many people make now to escape poverty, abuse, and violence. Citing St. Ignatius of Loyola's directives, Marissa recalls the value of giving everyone "the benefit of the doubt" before accusations, debates, and rejections of whole people cause more harm than help.
