Reflection for the First Sunday of Lent – Year A

Join Fr Russell Pollitt, SJ, as he reflects on the 1st Sunday of Lent. This week he looks at how two images from the Scriptures can help us to live Lent well. He says that Lent is our Garden of Eden – place of choice, and that Lent is our desert – an open space for re-prioritizing our lives.

You can find the texts in your bible. Read them and then join Fr Russell and listen to the reflection: Genesis 2:7-9, 3:1-7; Psalm 51; Romans 5:12-19 & Matthew 4:1-11.

For the Season of Lent we have also included a meditation after the reflection.
