“The devil said to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.’ Jesus answered him, ‘It is written, One does not live on bread alone.”
Imagine the cruelty of the devil in tempting Jesus in this way.
How is Jesus’ response a source of strength for you in your Lenten fasting?
Return often to the image of Jesus’ fasting in the desert during this Lent.
Heritage word—“How we satisfy our yearnings, our thirsts, our deepest desires identifies us as Christians. . .”
(Sr. Anne Mary, 11th Provincial of the Toledo Province)
