SUNDAY’S GOSPEL—February 18, 2018 – 1st Sunday of Lent

Author: David Dziena ~ February 13, 2018



Mark 1:12–15

In the Sunday Gospel, the Holy Spirit leads Jesus into the wilderness for 40 days. The desert is a place of testing, but it is also a place to be close to God. Jesus’ time in the desert calls us to make Lent a season of growth, a season for developing habits that will make us more loving toward God and one another.

    The picture is absolutely wonderful, makes Jesus appear very human, looking toward the rising sun, when I first saw it I just went wow how special.
