2nd Sunday of the Great Lent

The gospel of the Second Sunday deals with the temptation of doubting God’s paternity toward us, “If you are the son of God, why does He leave you hungry? Why does God allow the presence of disease, failure and the death of His beloved?”

Practice: It is our duty this week to examine our faith in the love of the Father Who gave His Son for us. Our faith should surpass all temptations and emotions. Faith in the Father should be a faith that fortifies us against the temptation of the adversary, the hardships of this world and the sufferings and desires of the body.
