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.

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.
