Happy Passion Sunday!
The Fifth Week of Lent leads us to a deeper contemplation of the Passion of Jesus. This is the traditional time of covering the images in church. We narrow our focus on these last days of Jesus in the flesh before Palm Sunday and Holy Week.
St. John 12:24, a key verse in our Gospel Reading today, reminds us to allow ourselves to be transformed, to die to ourselves and become useful to the Almighty! If our shell, our ego, can be surrendered, then like a grain of wheat, we can become an instrument to bare fruit.
Let us find time today and every day this week, to meditate on the Lord’s Passion and allow ourselves to be changed!
We are with you in this surrendering of our wills.
