Homilies: 1st Sunday of Lent, Year C

My homily for the 1st Sunday of Lent (Year C) as preached during the 5.30pm Saturday evening Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings were Deuteronomy 26:4-10; Romans 10:8-13; Luke 4:1-13.

“The temptation of Jesus in the desert – and the reliance of Jesus on God as revealed in the Word – reminds us that like Jesus we are called during Lent to embrace the traditional disciplines not for their own sake but so that we might be converted to be attuned to the heart of God not of the world. Our conversion should allow us to see as Jesus sees, to hear what Jesus hears, and to do what Jesus does.”
