First Lent Sunday

The account of Jesus' temptation in the desert is filled with allusions and parallels to the Old Testament, including the story of the people of Israel. The Israelites spent 40 years wandering in the desert in Exodus, for example, and Jesus spends 40 days in the desert. As the Israelites were tempted during the Exodus, so too is Jesus tempted.

Each temptation offers insight into both God and the human condition. Jesus' rejection of the temptations shows that he will not put God to the test. Grounding himself on the word and authority of Scripture, Jesus rebukes the devil, confident in God's protection and faithfulness.

As we start our journey through Lent, our Sunday readings call us to adopt the same confidence that Jesus had in the face of temptation: God's word alone will suffice; God's promise of protection can be trusted; God alone is God.

The Délia Tétreault Park

The inauguration of this park in the summer of 2017 will be for our Institute a great event to be celebrated with the citizens of Marieville.  What marvelous birthday presents for Délia on this 4th of February 2017 !

These new historic sites will surely result in further developments of the Cause of Délia Tétreault.  More people will know our Foundress, more people will pray to her and obtain exceptional favours which, we hope, will bring about her recognition as a “saint” throughout the universal Church.
