Life in the Spirit
Dear brothers and sisters,
After receiving the ashes on Wednesday, as a reminder of our weakness and need for conversion, we celebrate today the first Sunday of Lent. In the Gospel we saw Jesus going to the desert, where He stayed for forty days and was tempted. After this time, He went out and began his public preaching, calling everyone to a new life through conversion. Lent is marked by this constant call to conversion, to repentance, to changing.
