The First Sunday in Lent

Lent is a penitential season which began on Ash Wednesday and culminates in Holy Week. This first Sunday in Lent is always marked by a reading of the account of the temptation of Christ in the desert.

Collect

Almighty God, whose blessed Son was led by the Spirit to be tempted of Satan: Make speed to help thy servants who are assaulted by manifold temptations; and, as thou knowest their several infirmities, let each one find thee mighty to save; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
