1st Sunday of Lent

 

Gospel Mk 1:12-15

The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert,
and he remained in the desert for forty days,
tempted by Satan.
He was among wild beasts,
and the angels ministered to him.

After John had been arrested,
Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God:
“This is the time of fulfillment.
The kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

One thought on “1st Sunday of Lent

  1. I’m adding this note from the Poor Clare Colettines to share with you.

    Dear Little hearts,

    First Sunday of Lent ! What is God asking of me this lent? Gods message is always simple and direct:

    COME BACK TO ME – be present to me.. communicate with me in prayer and in the silence.

    Gods message is always simple and direct.

    As he says to us through the prophet Micah: What is good has been explained to you man; This is what the Lord asked of you: Only this, to act justly, To love tenderly and to walk humbly with your God.

    This means simply to allow our actions to be motivated by love, to serve others according to Gods law and Word, to love in a way that gives life, tenderly as a mother or father loves their child- and to walk in His footsteps with confidence and joy.

    A Blessed Sunday to you all and thank you for your notes and encouragement, thank you so much…this is walking humbly with God because only by grace and his help can it be understood!
