REFLECTION FOR THE FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT

The Spirit drove Jesus into the desert, where he remained for forty days of prayer and fasting. The angels ministered to Him (Mark 1: 12-13). During this season of lent, the Spirit of repentance reconciles us with God. It is a sacred time to intensify our prayer and reflection, which is the Spirit of the Society. Let us rest assured that the angels will minister to us too, as we journey this unfathomable mystery of God. It is my conviction that God supports and protects us in all our thin and thick against the evil one. His Spirit enables us to resist temptations we face in our lives. We are never alone!

Our contemplation, prayer, and adoration throughout the Lenten period will enable us to pay attention to the transformative Spirit, our attitudes, and actions. We pray that the spirit will lead us to be more thoughtful, compassionate, and kind. Let us make the best use of this time, embrace God, His mercy, and be transferred.

Like Noah, may we hold onto our faith and call upon God to grant us forgiveness and His great mercy. As RSCJs in His Great Ark, may the Lord continue to bless, guide, protect us from COVID-19, and grant us peace throughout our Lenten journey.

  2. Thank you Susan for your sharing / reflection on th very first day of Jesus’ time in the Desert is the temptation, He the son of God is immediately after His Baptism is put to the temptation. We too who are Baptised, have to face our own cahallenges. The consolation is in the sure fact tha we are not alone, He is with us, let us draw strenth and confidence from Him to struggle against all sorts of teptations that try to block our road of following Jesus. Yes, with Him, His spirit enables us to let go of the bad, word I would use to revenge someone, let go of suspicious thoughts, … .
