Second Sunday of Lent
The readings this week deserve to be read and reread and pondered. “God put Abraham to the test.” A bit scary, isn’t it? Think about it: God put (insert YOUR name) to the test. Perhaps one test you face arises from the disruptions caused by the pandemic – feelings of discouragement, isolation, doubt and fear to name a few! Despite the various difficulties that may need to be faced, listen again to the words God speaks in today’s gospel - “This is my beloved Son. Listen to Him.” Open your heart to Christ; listen attentively to what he is speaking to you, asking of you. How will you respond?
