1st Sunday of Lent
Originally delivered on February 21, 1988
Readings: Genesis 9:8-15; Peter 3:18-22; Mark 1:12-15
In the first reading we are reminded of the story of Noah’s ark to be saved at the time of the flood. And yet, despite this flood, we hear that God saved one family and the animals because of His love for His people. In return, we are to give glory to God for all that we have from God. We are responsible for God’s creation, including our sisters and brothers, the environment, and animals.
