During the six weeks of Lent 2020, Bishop Donal McKeown invites us, as individuals, as families and parish faith communities of the Diocese of Derry, to use the six Sunday Gospels of Lent to look at the life of service to which God is calling all of us, as the 2020 disciples of Jesus.
Priests and parishioners of the diocese are asked to create opportunities in their parish for discussion of each Gospel reflection.
Bishop Donal's sixth reflection for consideration is outlined below.
The Gospel of the sixth Sunday of Lent 2020 can be viewed here on CatholicIreland.Net
Reflection by Bishop Donal
Today is the culmination of Jesus' journey from Galilee. He comes into Jerusalem, true to His simple lifestyle.He is welcomed by the ordinary, the little ones. He is prepared to face those who hate and reject what He stands for. He is prepared to pay the price for standing for the truth – because truth cannot be overcome. Jesus began His ministry by resisting temptations to take the easy path and He ended His ministry resisting temptations and submitting to the will of God the Father.
