Fifth Sunday of Lent

LAZARUS:  UNTIED AND FULLY ALIVE

(Note:  The Readings for Year A were chosen due to the Scrutinies)

St. Ireneus said that “that the glory of God is a human being fully alive.”

It is a summary statement of our faith – when we are fully alive, just by being, we give glory to God.  And conversely:  God is saddened when death reigns in us on any level.  What keeps you from being fully alive? What aspects of your life are below the surface, restricting and alienating you?

The lesson of Lazarus is that we cannot save ourselves, but it is through Jesus that we are saved.  At the sight of death, Jesus commands,  “take away the stone!”  The message is as true for us as it was for Lazarus; yet, this is no easy task.  As to how it is accomplished, listen in and find out.
