1st Sunday of Lent (C)

We do not live on bread alone LUKE 4:1–13

As Catholics, we begin the practices and observances of the season of Lent so that with heart and spirit renewed, we may celebrate that faith in a bond that can only be expressed as Covenant.

This Covenant as expressed in today’s first reading is the Holy relationship, given by God, to his people Israel on Mt Sinai (Deut 26:4–10) To this day, the Jews celebrate this as a feast called Shavuot or the Feasts of Weeks.
