On this First Sunday of Lent we journey with Jesus into the
desert of emptiness and temptation. During his 40 days in the
wilderness Jesus did not turn his heart away from his loving
Father. In the midst of being tempted by Satan, Jesus is
sheltered by God. God's angels minister to him and he is
secure among wild beasts. The heart of Jesus was strengthened
in knowing God was with him and would never fail him. His
experience alone with God opened his heart to embrace the
challenges in the journey he would undertake.
We know that Lent is a time to change our hearts through fasting, praying and giving alms.
Rooted in the Cross, Word, and Eucharist ... compassionately responding through prayer, presence, and hospitality.
