2nd Sunday of Lent

In this vlog, Fr. MD continues his discussion from last week on the importance of finding a quiet place for prayer during Lent.  Jesus took three Apostles to the top of the mountain where they witnessed His Transfiguration.  What would have  happened if the Transfiguration had occurred on a busy street?  The Apostles probably would have missed it because they would be too distracted.  Based on the readings of Genesis 22: 1-18; Romans 8: 31-34; Mark 9: 2-10.

1st Sunday of Lent

Why did Jesus have to go to the  desert for 40 days?  He needed a quiet place without distraction so he could figure out what God wanted from him.  Likewise, we need to find a quiet place everyday during Lent to figure out what God wants from us.  God bless.  Based on the readings of Genesis 9: 8-15; 1 Peter 3: 18-22; Mark 1: 12-15.
