RCL Reflection for the First Sunday in Lent, Year B, February 21, 2021The lessons appointed for Lent bring us face to face with Jesus’ ministry from baptism to cross and grave. We begin on Ash Wednesday with a stark reminder of our own mortality, something we don’t ponder enough in our death-avoidant culture. We follow the narrative arc of our Lord’s life and work, and yes, we go with him to suffer and die.

Mark’s gospel structure gives us some hints. (Photo: S. Blezard, Creative Commons)
