For the First Sunday in Lent we are challenged to go to the desert with Jesus and face our temptations. Find helps and reflections for youth and families for the Sunday readings here.
1st Sunday of Lent – Year A (2023)
The readings for the 1st Sunday of Lent get us thinking about sin and temptation. This is a good time to think about how we plan to spend our 40 days in the desert and make a Lenten promise if we have not done this yet. There are many ideas for this on the Catholic Ideas for Lent page. It is also a good time to remember that we have some superheroes called saints on our side.
1st Sunday of Lent – Year B (2021)
The readings for the 1st Sunday of Lent for Year B get us thinking how God is faithful even when we wander away from him. So these readings get us started on our Lenten journey. It is time to commit to prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
1st Sunday of Lent – Year C (2022)
The readings for the First Sunday of Lent for Year C demonstrate that we must give our whole lives to God. This is a good time to think about if we give our whole selves to the Lord or if we hold back for ourselves.
