First Sunday of Lent – Repentant Heart

The message is clear on this first Sunday in Lent: Repent! It’s a message that echoes that of Ash Wednesday and gets to the heart of the matter. Mark’s gospel adds “This is the time of fulfillment.” How do you need to be “fulfilled” as a human being, a spouse or family member, a coworker, a retired person? As needed, repent your past and look to the rest of Lent with hope that God will fill your heart with His own love.

    I love the positive notion you put on some old, darker focuses.
