On the final Sunday in Lent, the 2nd Reading us focussed on the events of Holy Week – of Chirst’s death and new life and it’s meaning for us. As we conclude our Lenten Sacramental Refelctions we use this to explore the Sacrament of the Sick and how we should approach our own mortal life.
Christ’s submission to the Father’s Will is the focus of this week’s (and next’s) 2nd Reading. This gives us an oppurtunity to reflect on the duty of obedience in the Church, both in everyday life, but in Marriage and Holy Orders.
In a Lenten Sunday of particular rejoycing – we pass half-way point of Lent. With that, we can begin to see over the brow of the hill to Easter, and what that means for us and our understanding of God’s lasting great gift to us – the Eucharist.
1 Corinthians 1: 22-25
Many people refuse to believe in God and instead demand a sign from Him as confirmation, or scientic evidence as proof. But as well as providing these thorughout histroy, God gives us these gift in our very own lives in the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Continuing our Lenten relfections on the Sacraments in the 2nd reading, this week we look at what Paul means when he speaks of God Aquiting – and what it can tell us about the Sacrament of Confession.
