The First Sunday of Lent focuses us on one of the key features of our Lenten journey: finding self-knowledge and working out how to make God the centre of your life. Try these:
Bishop Robert Barron on “Three Questions from the Desert“.
Bible Scholar, Dr John Bergsma, on “The Temptations of Jesus“.
Bible Scholar, Dr Brant Pitre, on the readings for the First Sunday of Lent.

Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill have issued a Joint Declaration. Read and observe how the Holy Spirit is working in the Church today.
