LISTEN: Reflection for the 4th Sunday of Lent — Year A

Today marks the fourth Sunday of Lent. Lent is a time in which we try to follow Jesus closely as he walks to his crucifixion. In the time leading up to his crucifixion, Jesus lives out his ministry – preaching, teaching and healing people. It is a time during which Jesus is tempted and plotted against.

Looking at our world and our country, with the Corona Virus crisis, load shedding and the recession, everyone is fearful for his or her life. Society is filled with a sense of helplessness. We are all in desperate need for a solution to this crisis.

Today’s readings bring hope. We see Jesus healing the blind man to show us that if we believe, God will help us regain our spiritual sight and a way through these crises.
