Lenten Prayer Reflection by Adriell Louis

Feb 14 2016

LK 4:1-13

In this Gospel, Jesus spends forty days and nights in the desert and undergoes his three temptations. Not only does Jesus find Himself in the harsh environment of the desert, but He is also tested by the devil. He faces His trials with faith and fortitude, however, and provides us with an example of how we must carry ourselves in the face of temptation. Furthermore, the Lenten season goes back to Jesus’ time in the desert. We should take this time to reflect on His suffering and use this season to strengthen our relationships with God.
