Thank you as always for your generous contributions.
Today is the First Sunday of Lent. Today is also the beginning of our Novena of Hope. In today’s Gospel Jesus is confronted with the decision of how he is to fulfil his messianic mission. It is from obedience that he decides not upon the way offered to him by Satan but on his Father’s way. The readings of Lent tell the story of how human kind broke their relationship with God and how through Jesus’s life, death and resurrection we find our way back.
