First Sunday of Lent - 1st March

Posted on 1st March, 2020

 

Jesus is Tempted by the DevilThe Temptation of Jesus

 

"By abstaining forty long days from earthly food, he consecrated through his fast the pattern of our Lenten observance and, by overturning all the snares of the ancient serpent, taught us to cast out the leaven of malice, so that, celebrating worthily the Paschal Mystery, we might pass over at last to the eternal paschal feast."

 

(From the Preface for the First Sunday of Lent)
