First Sunday in Lent 2018
Grace is present at every moment for us but especially during Lent. We, as Christians, must not be a scandal to those in the world. Lent is our retreat and it is dangerous to our spiritual life not to realize this. The virtue of chastity cannot be practiced without constant help from grace. We need the sacraments, prayer and spiritual reading to be holy. Christ was tempted in three ways which are conquered by our penances of fasting, prayer and almsgiving. Remembering the four last things will help save us.
