FAITH BOOK

FIFTH SUNDAY OF LENT (A) MARCH 17, 2024

Ezekiel 37: 12-14; Psalm 130; Romans 8: 8-11; John 11: 1-45

Jude Siciliano, OP


Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. “Faith Book” is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

[When Jesus heard that his friend Lazarus was ill, he said]
“This illness is not to end in death,
but is for the glory of God,
that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”

 

Reflection:


How do we discover the “glory of God?” In Jesus God comes to the dead spots and the tombs, that seal us up – limited vision, addictions, indifference, helplessness, spiritual fatigue and discouragement – and calls each of us by name, “N,  come out!”

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

What “tombs” or dead spots do you experience in your life?  In the world?

Would you invite Jesus to come to those tombs and speak a word of life there?
