Lent – “Cyclops’ & Conclaves” (1st Sunday)



Gospel – Luke 4: 1 – 13

1And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan, and was led by the Spirit
2for forty days in the wilderness, tempted by the devil. And he ate nothing in those days; and when they were ended, he was hungry.
3The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”
4And Jesus answered him, “It is written, `Man shall not live by bread alone.'”
5And the devil took him up, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time,
6and said to him, “To you I will give all this authority and their glory; for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will.
7If you, then, will worship me, it shall all be yours.”
8And Jesus answered him, “It is written, `You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'”
9And he took him to Jerusalem, and set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here;
10for it is written, `He will give his angels charge of you, to guard you,’
11and `On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.'”
12And Jesus answered him, “It is said, `You shall not tempt the Lord your God.'”
13And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time.

  1. Thanks! Was really good! I liked how you explained the Popes retirement. Also, you could do whole homily on the benefits of fasting!
