First Sunday of Lent: The desert experience

Every year, on the first Sunday of Lent, the gospel is on the temptations of Jesus in the desert. In Mark’s brief narrative of the temptation it is the Spirit who, leads him into the wilderness.
 
If “to tempt” is tantamount to “incite to evil,” the Spirit does not do that. There are temptations that are not incitement to evil. These are the times when one is forced to make choices that are conducive occasions to make faith more solid and unwavering.

First Sunday of Lent: Lent it go

Chinese New Year na ulit. Isa sa mga nakaugalian na, lalo na dito sa Hong Kong ay maglinis ng bahay, at magtapon ng mga luma at maruming  kasangkapan  Ang may mga kakayanan ay bumibili o nagpapalit ng mga bagong gamit sa bahay o sa pangangatawan.  Ang ganitong gawain ay hudyat na may bagong taon na darating at ito ay magandang salubungin ng may maaliwalas at malinis na pamumuhay.
