In Christ We Find Fullness

Fr.-JeromeDear friends: Today, as we enter the fourth Sunday of Lent, we are called upon to renew ourselves and experience the loving invitation of our Lord. This is what the readings remind us. In the early church, those candidates to be baptized, and public sinners, were called upon to understand that Jesus alone is the new life. In the first reading, the house of David seems to have come to an end. Because of their infidelity, the people have suffered. But God’s plan of salvation continues to move forward. In the second reading, Paul overwhelms us with the message of God’s mercy. When we were dead through our sins, He brought us back to life in Christ. The Father has done everything for us in Jesus. In the Gospel, Jesus, the giver of new life, tells us of the love of God for humanity, how He sacrificed his own Son. Jesus declares that He must be lifted up on a cross to glorify God and bring salvation to the world.

Once again, I would like to remind you about the parish Lenten Mission and the penitential service on Tuesday this week. I hope you can come, and that you encourage your friends to come and celebrate the sacraments. We find fullness in God’s Mercy.
