INTO THE DESERT
1ST SUNDAY OF LENT

Dear Parishioners,
One of the major themes of this holy season we call Lent is a recalling of our baptism in which we have been claimed for Christ and have had our dignity restored through his passion, death, and resurrection.  It is in this season, that through our prayer, fasting, and almsgiving that we journey with the Lord to remind us of our baptismal call that we are made in his likeness and are striving to be holy as he is holy.  We especially pray for the eight catechumens from our parish and the hundreds of others who will be using this season to prepare themselves to receive the Sacraments of Initiation at Easter.  May this time be for all of us a time of conversion, a time of peace, and a time of hope as we enter into the Paschal Mystery of our faith.

In today’s gospel we have Jesus “immediately” going out into the desert after his own baptism in the Jordan.  He stays in the desert 40 days and 40 nights and is tempted by Satan.  One might think, “why would Jesus be tempted?” or “if Jesus was just baptized, doesn’t he have the grace to avoid temptation?”  And the answer is, yes!  Jesus needed to be tempted because this shows us that just as much as he is divine, he is also human.  This is why he needed to be baptized.  This is why he was tempted, because he is one of us.  However, he did not submit to the temptations of the devil.  He persevered through his fasting and praying in the desert.  Jesus goes out into the desert to help us in our own “deserts” and temptations.

Brothers and sisters, we have begun our season of conversion, our season of Lent.  We go out into the desert where we will face our temptations head on and conquer it through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving and of course through Jesus Christ who himself went into the desert and was tempted for our sake.  We can take comfort in this when faced with our weaknesses this Lenten season.  Persevere, pray hard, convert your lives, and remember that you are beloved sons and daughters of God who sent his son as expiation for our sins.  Now is the time to change our ways!  Now is the day of salvation!

Here are some tips and or ways that might help you this Holy Season to grow closer to Jesus and change our lives:
• Arrive early to Mass and spend time preparing to receive Jesus in the Eucharist, who is your strength in times of temptation and struggle.
• Spend time after Mass giving thanks for the gift of Jesus himself in the Eucharist.
• Turn off your cellphones, iPads, computers, radios etc. for 10 mins each day to observe silence in order to hear God speaking to you.
• Clean out your closets and cabinets.  Get rid of anything you haven’t used in the last year and give to a homeless shelter or charitable organization or food pantry.
• Attend daily Mass once a week or Stations of the Cross.

 
Blessed Lent to all!!!
