You alone are God.

"Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord, for you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God." (Psalm  86: 8, 10).

Our key Scripture for Friday in the 3rd week of Lent is from the Entrance Antiphon. As we draw nearer to the great Solemnity of Easter Vigil and the renewal of our Baptismal Promises, you may call this Friday, "No to Idols Friday." After soul searching, we say to God: "You are the only God." Not money, not science, not technology, not health, not family, not power, lust or fame. "You alone are God." You are the Evergreen Cypress Tree. Because of You, we are alive and still faithful. (Cf Psalm 85: 10; Hosea 14: 8).

"The Lord our God is Lord alone!  You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength." (Mark 12: 29 - 30).

"Praise and honour to you, Lord Jesus!
The seed is the word of God, Christ the sower; whoever finds this seed will remain for ever.
Praise and honour to you, Lord Jesus!" (Gospel Acclamation).
