“After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God.” (Mark 1:14)
Lent is a time of transformation. Upon Jesus’ return from the desert, the Prophet John the Baptist gave way to the Word of God.
The effects of Lent are lasting. After his death, Jesus passed on the fruits of his desert experience to Peter and the apostles. As a result, we too have access to Jesus’ Lent experience. Let us make the most of it.
Lord Jesus, you used John the Baptist, Peter, and the apostles to prepare the way for you and spread the gospel of God. We humbly ask that you give us the same grace this Lenten season and the strength to fulfill it.
Peace and Goodness
