LISTEN: Reflection for the 5th Sunday Lent — Year A

This Sunday’s readings talk about prophecy, the gift of the Spirit at Baptism, as well as death, being witnesses to new life, and resurrection.

Join Fr Matthew Charlesworth SJ as he considers what the story of Lazarus has to say to us in our time. How can we find life at home at the moment? What are the life-giving activities that we can do as families and friends – even while we are physically separated?

Let us remember that this is Jesus’ desire for all of us this Lent: that we will have life and have it abundantly. Just as Jesus found a way to save Lazarus, allow him to work in your life to save you too.

Ezekiel 37:12-14; Psalm 130; Romans 8:8-11; John 11:1-45
