In this path of reconciliation that we have proposed for this Lent, the Gospel for the first Sunday offered us the opportunity to ask ourselves how we react to one of the most common temptations to which we are exposed. Like Jesus in the desert, the temptation of power meets us. Whatever our state of life, our social or economic condition, our trade or profession, all people have a share of power. Deep within our human nature lies the dream of doing good, let us make a conscious effort to reconcile the desire to exercise our power with the desire to transform our environment. In the simple, in the small and in lo cotidiano. We will be surprised to see what we are capable of! May the words and actions of Jesus, Incarnate Word, be our guide.
