Cincinnati Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk talks about the Three Temptations of Christ.
First Sunday of Lent, Year B
Cincinnati Archbishop Daniel E. Pilarczyk leads us through this First Sunday of Lent. His 10-minute homily addresses the temptations Jesus was offered by Satan in the desert. In the question-and-answer segment Archbishop Pilarczyk relates how these temptations relate to our everyday lives, whether it be worldly pleasure, power at work or any other temptation away from God’s wondrous offer of love. This week’s musical selection is “Song of the Temptation” by GIA Artist David Haas. You can listen separately to that song, to the musical setting of the Lord’s Prayer or to Archbishop Pilarczyk’s blessing by following the links below. Better yet, listen to the entire retreat.
