Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Repentance”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed, “Repent and believe in the Gospel. . .for the Kingdom of God is close at hand.” Unless we “repent” with sincerity and beg God for the strength and wisdom to live the Gospel with greater fidelity, our faith and relationship with Jesus will not deepen. Is this true of me?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
The Spirit drove Jesus into the desert and he remained there for forty days, and was put to the test by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and the angels looked after him.
After John had been arrested, Jesus went into Galilee. There he proclaimed the gospel from God saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is close at hand. Repent, and believe the gospel.’
As he was walking along by the Lake of Galilee he saw Simon and Simon’s brother Andrew casting a net in the lake — for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, ‘Come after me and I will make you into fishers of people.
