Gospel text (Mk 1,12-15): The Spirit drove Jesus out into the wilderness and He remained there for forty days, and was tempted by Satan. The Spirit drove Jesus out into the wilderness and He remained there for forty days, and was tempted by Satan. He was with the wild beasts, and the angels looked after him. After John had been arrested, Jesus went into Galilee. There He proclaimed the Good News from God. «The time has become», He said «and the kingdom of God is close at hand. Repent, and believe the Good News».

Today, Jesus is preparing the announcement of our salvation: «This is the time of fulfilment. The kingdom of God is at hand.» Jesus feels it is not enough to “preach us a sermon”: Above all He prays for us; he went to the desert in loneliness, prayer and fasting... This may sound strange but we need to do the same, at least a little time every day.

- «Repent, and believe in the Gospel». When a man never prays nor fasts then his life becomes a desert where he dies of boredom.

The new evangeli.net website is now available. We hope that the distribution of the content and the new features will facilitate the reading and meditation of the Gospel and its commentary.
