Lent 2015: Second Sunday (Cycle B): The Beloved Child

"This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him." (Mark 9)
This is the day of beloved children, of the favoured only child, Isaac, beloved child of Abraham, and of Jesus, beloved child of God. 
I know a family whose beloved and only son ran out into the street on his eager way home from school and was struck by a passing car. The child died.

Lent 2015: First Sunday (Cycle B) - Challenge of the Desert

"The Spirit drove Jesus out into the wilderness and he...was tempted by Satan. He was with the wild beasts, and the angels looked after him... he proclaimed... "Repent, and believe the Good News'..." (Mark 1: 12-15)


To repent always means to turn to the way of God. The desert-wilderness is a place both of temptation and of repentance. It is a place of decision.
