Reflections on the Sunday’s Readings: March 29, 2015

Palm SundayThis Sunday is Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion. Welcoming the deepest mysteries of our faith…Holy Week shows us our faith “in a nutshell.” Jesus takes in everything this world brings, responds only in love, and is willing to let everything go, even his human life, to be true to God and his own identity.

As followers of Jesus, we too are called to this “paschal journey.” Will you follow this same path, wherever it takes you? Are we willing to live as Jesus lived, practice His teachings and values, love as He loved; and even go with Him to the Cross through what appears a disastrous loss – trusting in the power of God’s ultimate love and life?

Reflections on the Sunday’s Readings and Spiritual Practices: March 22, 2015

Seed GrowingThis is the Fifth Sunday of Lent. Dying to give life is an observable wonder of nature, and a necessary aspect of redemption. Death - self-giving - is the only way to fullness of life and a share in God’s glory. As followers of Jesus, we, too are part of this paschal process. We have to die to ourselves in order to be transformed into something new.

How open are you to giving of yourself, to letting go of your preferences and perspectives? How do we need to let go - to change - in order that Christ might fashion us into life-giving sustenance for others?
