March 1~ The First Sunday of Lent

Jesus was like us in all things but sin. In today’s gospel, Jesus is tempted over and over but does not give in to the temptations. This first Sunday in Lent is a good time to look at our lives and to ask ourselves what tempts us away from God and from the light of Christ. There are three spiritual practices of Lent that are intended to help us improve our relationship with God: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Which of these practices will be most helpful to you in avoiding temptation this Lent? Don’t wait. . . start today!
