First Sunday of Lent

“Dear friends, Lent is the favorable season for renewing our encounter with Christ, living in his word, in the sacraments, and in our neighbor. The Lord, who overcame the deceptions of the Tempter during the forty days in the desert, shows us the path we must take. May the Holy Spirit lead us on a true journey of conversion so that we can rediscover the gift of God’s word, be purified of the sin that blinds us, and serve Christ present in our brothers and sisters in need.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: How might your fast this Lent draw you closer to Christ? Which passage(s) from Scripture might help you to follow the Holy Spirit when you struggle to keep your fast throughout the next few weeks?
