       If you think a little just a little more deeply about it, we can begin to make out a picture showing a similarity between our Ash Wednesday experience versus how Jesus was led out into the desert by the spirit where he spent 40 days being tempted by Satan.  Naturally Jesus did not have ashes placed on his head but the similarities can be drawn through the things he did and the things we are asked to do during the 40 days of Lent beginning with the receiving of ashes.  What did Jesus do during his 40 solitary days?  He lived among the wild beasts. We do not live among actual wild beasts but we live in the world where sometimes we encounter people worse than a wild beast, evil does live among us.  He was ministered to by the Angels.  We have our own angels who watch out for us but more importantly we are ministered to and fed by the Body of Christ.  We are also obligated to pray, fast, and give alms.  Prayer.  Jesus prayed to his father in the desert as he did so many other times when he was alone, the Garden of Gethsemane for example just before his passion.  After hearing his cousin John the Baptist was beheaded he went away alone and prayed, even the night before he chose his disciples he prayed in solitude.  We need to pray for each other.  Praying for each other and not only ourselves is a sacrificial and self-denying act.  It is a penitential sign of repentance. Fasting. Jesus fasted not only on the Fridays, but all the 40 days he spent in the desert.  Which makes me question why people complain about fasting on the Fridays of Lent, which amounts to only 7 times in 40 days.  This year the Solemnity of St. Joseph falls on March 19th, a Friday, during Lent, which means we may have a dispensation from the Lenten fast and if we are granted the dispensation then there will be only 6 Fridays to fast.  Fasting for us is a sacrificial and self-denying act.  It is a penitential sign of repentance.  Alms giving.  We are encouraged to help those who need help.  If it means sharing some of the gifts we receive from God then so be it.  Donating to a worthy cause is simple, either monetarily or donations of food to our food pantry, it is safe and easy.  During Lent we should give some thought of venturing beyond that zone we consider the safe and easy thing to do.  Come and help out at our food distribution, meet the people who live day to day not knowing if they will have a meal or not.  Adopt someone who is a shut in and never has anyone to talk to for weeks at a time.  Yes, yes, I know, pandemic protocols must be observed but even more than ever now people are being isolated.  Viruses cannot travel over the phone lines, just sayin.  Alms giving is a sacrificial and self-denying act.  It is a penitential sign of repentance, especially when we go outside of our comfort zone.  Jesus, the greatest giver, gave more than alms to the poorest people, us, all of humanity.  He gave us forgiveness and life everlasting with him.  Remember the first reading from the Old Testament today?   God promised Noah never to flood the earth again, but he did. Except instead of using water this time, it was the blood of his son.  And as it did the first time, it wiped out all sin in the world for those who are repentant.  Lent is a chance for us to come and receive Jesus with a renewed and clean heart.  So repent and believe in the Gospel.
 
Peace, Deacon Eric Kim
