FAITH BOOK

4th SUNDAY OF LENT -C- March 31, 2019

Joshua 5: 9a, 10-12; Psalm 34; 2 Corinthians 5: 17-21; Luke 15: 1-3, 11-32

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 2 Corinthians reading:

 

"Whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away;

Behold, new things have come."

 

Reflection:

 

Paul says our relationship with God was restored, not through any work of ours, but through God’s initiative in Christ. It wasn’t just Jesus’ sacrificial death that accomplished our reconciliation, but his sacrificial life. Throughout his life he poured himself out for us in love. This was God’s doing and, if we accept it in faith, we are reconciled to God.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • As we reflect on our lives this Lent, what feels "old": a worn-out way of behaving?

  • Have we noticed any signs of new life in those very areas?
