Reflection for the First Sunday in Lent Year B St. Mark 1: 12 – 15. Jesus in the Wilderness preparatory to beginning his Ministry
Fr. Doyle, parish priest of St. Dominic’s in Stone, preaching on St. Mark’s Gospel, admires St. Mark for his ‘short and snappy’ incidents, which, says Fr. Doyle, always have a point to make. I think that today's 'short and snappy’ Gospel reading has an important point to make for ourselves, we who follow St. Dominic in following Our Lord as preachers, as spreading the ‘Good News’ of the Kingdom of God.
