Moses Intercedes For His People


In the first reading today, Moses intercedes on behalf of the Israelites that they be spared from God's wrath for crafting and worshiping the Golden Calf. God relents and forgives them.

We have a far more compassionate and effective intercessor for us now - Jesus Christ. Lent is the perfect time to identify the idols we may have placed before God, turn away from them and seek forgiveness - especially in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
