First Sunday in Lent
Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7
THE GOSPEL READING:
Question for Reflection
How might you grow in faith and draw near to Jesus through the forty days of Lent?
Holy God, as this day surrounds me like a garden with a thousand trees, give me enough knowledge to obey your commandments, and to choose the fruit that gives life: the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Where can I hide from you, O God? You have found me here stained with the fruit of desire, shivering in the evening breeze. This is all I ask: wrap me in your mercy, and let me rest in your presence; for the sake of Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen.
