01 March 2020 – Lent 1A (COCU 19A)

(Matthew 4:1-11)
Moses, Elijah,
both spent forty days
then felt God’s presence.

In the wilderness
Jesus fasted forty days:
famished, then tempted.

Jesus’ dark night ends,
angels minister to him
the presence of God.

When my dark night comes
will the angels then bring me
the presence of God?
