Day by Day Through Lent: Day Twenty-nine

Lazarus! Come out!

The Fifth Sunday of Lent begins what is traditionally known as "Lazarus Week." The story from the Gospel of John recounting the raising of Lazarus is the main Gospel for this Sunday, and its theme carries through the entire week. This will be the last full week of Lent; next Sunday will be Palm Sunday! Today our reflection is simple, but moving. Watch the dramatic scene of the raising of Lazarus from the movie “Jesus of Nazareth.” Click on the picture of Jesus calling Lazarus out of the tomb! (above)

Don't forget our Communal Penance Service on Monday evening at 7:00 PM in the church. Six or seven priests from the area will be for the sacrament of reconciliation. Please join us!
