Sunday, March 1, 2020:
Jesus said: “My people, as you continue with your Lenten devotions, you can join your penances with My suffering in the desert. In the Gospel you are aware of the three temptations I endured from the devil in the desert. The first temptation is when the devil asked Me to change some stones into bread to satisfy My hunger. But I told the devil that man does not live on bread alone, but on the obedience to God. During Lent My people are also fasting between meals, and some may be giving up eating desserts. In the second temptation of the devil, he took Me to the top of the Temple and he asked Me to throw Myself down so My angels would catch Me. But I told the devil not to tempt the Lord Thy God. My people also need to work on restraining your bad habits, by your prayers, Confessions, and your good deeds for people, as well as your almsgiving. In the third temptation the devil showed Me all the kingdoms of mankind, and he asked Me to bow down to him, and he would give them over to Me. I told the devil, you are only to worship God alone, and not any other gods before Him. So My faithful should worship Me only on Sunday and do not let other things of the world distract you from Me. During these forty days, remain faithful to your Lenten devotions and continue what you are giving up, and share your good deeds and donations with your neighbors. Let this Lent clean up any of your bad habits so you can be fully faithful to Thy Lord.”
