First Sunday of Lent
Lectionary: 23

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.”

Reflection by Deacon Bruno Schettini, MD
Let us stop, turn from the wrong path, and believe that Jesus will lead us to eternal life and the everlasting joy of Heaven.
