Second Sunday of Lent

This is my chosen Son; listen to him.
~Luke 9:35

This is, therefore, the gift and commitment for each one of us in the Lenten Season: To listen to Christ, like Mary. To listen to him in the word, preserved in sacred Scripture. To listen to him in the very events of our lives, trying to read in them the messages of providence. To listen to him, finally, in our brothers, especially in the little ones and the poor, for whom Jesus himself asked our concrete love. To listen to Christ and to obey his voice. This is the only way that leads to joy and love.  ~Pope Benedict XVI, 3/13/06 Angelus Message
Let Thy voice sound in my ears:
for Thy voice is sweet,
and Thy face comely.
~Songs 2:14
