Our Sacred Roots: The Priesthood of All Believers


T he S eason of L ent

First Sunday in Lent March 6 - 12, 2022


The Lenten Season, a forty-day period starting on Ash Wednesday and ending on Holy Saturday of Holy Week, calls us to reflect on Jesus’s suffering, crucifixion, and death. As disciples of the humble Nazarene, we embrace his lowliness and humility, seeking to share the mind of himwho was obedient to death, even death on a cross.

THIS WEEK’S THEME It IsWritten, Luke 4.1-13

After his baptism by John in the Jordan, Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness, where he ate nothing for forty days. The devil tempted him three times: to change a stone into a loaf of bread, to fall down and worship the devil (with the benefit of the authority and glory of the world’s kingdoms), and to cast himself from the pinnacle of the Temple in order to be rescued by angels. In every case, Jesus answered the tempter with a word of Scripture. In every regard, Jesus resisted the temptations of the devil, and when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Jesus until an opportune time.

As Jesus defeated the enemy’s lies in the wilderness, so grant us the grace to remember and use your holy Word in every situation where the enemy seeks to overwhelm us or distract us from your will. In Jesus’s name, amen.
