Baptism, Reconciliation, and Lent
After Jesus' baptism in the Jordan we are told that He was led by the Spirit to the desert to be tempted. Interesting, how just after being baptized the Son of God is sent to the desert alone to be tempted. We too are led to our own deserts and are allowed to experience these temptations as we move through society. How do we respond? Do we find time to truly reconcile ourselves with God? For those joining the Catholic Church, our elect, this is also an important season for them to prepare for the Sacraments of Initiation (baptism, Holy Communion, and confirmation). How are we assisting these men and women on their journey of faith. Let's explore these questions together!
