The Journey Begins Again – We Need a Heart Transplant!
The 1st Sunday of Lent Year C.
Join Dina Marie Hale on this weekly broadcast as she reflects upon the readings for the 1st Sunday in Lent, Year C. The readings for the Mass are from Deuteronomy, Psalm 91, Romans and the Gospel of Luke. Today we hear the account of Jesus being led into the desert for 40 days to be tempted by the devil. We too, are tempted in many ways to turn away from God, and to sin. Let us embrace the endless mercy of God and turn our hearts to Christ always. Now, join us for this Lenten reflection with Dina Marie.

Prayer for the Poor, Suffering and Friendless
In your loving and tender mercy, Lord and Father, assist especially those who are poor and deprived, those who suffer, and all who are without hope in this life unless you come to their aid. It is you alone who can bring great good out of the worst evils by your unbounded power. So we trust you to curb the malice of the wicked, to convert sinners, and bring us all to a knowledge of your love.
These favors we beg in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, your only Son, who reigns forever with you and the Holy Spirit, God, through all ages. Amen.
