February 17th & 18th, 2018
✙ First Sunday of Lent Time

Sunday Readings for February 18th , 2018

      EACH OF US is involved in a constant struggle against temptation. We see from the Gospel that Jesus too was tempted. Hence, He understands our weakness in the face of temptation. And because he was victorious over temptation, he can help us.
      Let us then approach Him with confidence, asking for the help we need to overcome our temptations. Lord Jesus, you strengthen us when we are weak. Lord, have mercy.
     You lift us up when we fall. Christ, have mercy.
     You see us out when we are lost. Lord, have mercy..

Lent: Springtime of the Spirit

      Each year the trees give us a lesson in renewal. First the bud, then the blossom, and finally the shoot. Spring dresses the trees in a new robe, and makes them young again. But this is possible only because in autumn they let go of their old leaves, and in between endure a period of nakedness. Lent is in the springtime of the spirit.
       Lord, help us not to be afraid to let go of old habits, and to face our spiritual poverty, in order that you may renew us, and do at Easter we will feel young again in our discipleship.
