Third Sunday of Lent, Year C with Fr. Daniel Kelley. Two and a half weeks ago, as we began our Lenten journeys, we may have been told, “Repent, and believe in the Gospel.” It was not a suggestion. It was a command, a command to orient ourselves toward God. Have we followed this command? Are we putting our faith into action? It’s not too late. Like the fig tree in today’s Gospel, we are cared for by a patient gardener. We have been given another chance to bear fruit.
