Show Notes

The First Sunday of Lent presents to us once more the temptations of Christ by the Devil in the desert, towards the end of the forty long days that Our Lord spent in the wilderness. His forty days gives us the model for our forty days of Lent, with its trials and testing, its penance, prayer and almsgiving. Also, His victory over Satan gives us confidence for every temptation and trial that comes our way.
