The confession of faith of the elect.
Psalm 90(91):1–2, 10–15
R. Be with me, Lord, when I am in trouble.
The confession of faith of the believers in Christ
No one lives on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.
Filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus was led by the Spirit through the wilderness where he was tempted.
Images from the Word

Three readings, that is, from a Prophet, an Apostle, and a Gospel, are assigned to Sundays—General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §357
and Solemnities. By these readings, the Christian people are brought to know the continuity of the
work of salvation according to the wonderful divine plan.
As we celebrate again the season of Lent in preparation for the feast of Easter, we begin, with the story of Abraham, to understand the fidelity of our God in the great work of salvation. Across the centuries, from the days of Abraham to the numerous people of today, Abraham’s faith holds the three religious traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam in the mysterious plan of God. Each tradition will name Abraham as our father. May we come to know the continuity of God’s work of salvation.
