4th Sunday of Lent

1st Reading: Jos 5:9a, 10-12:
The Lord said to Joshua,
“Today I have removed the reproach of Egypt from you.”

While the Israelites were encamped at Gilgal on the plains of Jericho, they celebrated the Passover on the evening of the fourteenth of the month. On the day after the Passover, they ate of the produce of the land in the form of unleavened cakes and parched grain. On that same day after the Passover, on which they ate of the produce of the land, the manna ceased. No longer was there manna for the Israelites, who that year ate of the yield of the land of Canaan.

3rd Sunday of Lent

Blessed Oscar Romero

1st Reading: Ex 3:1-8a, 13-15:
Moses pastured the sheep of Jethro, his father-in-law, priest of Midian. One day he led the flock to the far side of the desert and came to Horeb, the Mountain of God. The angel of Yahweh appeared to him by means of a flame of fire in the middle of a bush. Moses saw that although the bush was on fire it did not burn up. Moses thought, “I will go and see this amazing sight, why is the bush not burning up?” Yahweh saw that Moses was drawing near to look, and God called to him from the middle of the bush, “Moses! Moses!” He replied, “Here I am.” Yahweh said to him, “Do not come near; take off your sandals because the place where you are standing is holy ground.”


Weekly Devotion – March 18th

Jesus appears with Moses and Elijah as He is transfigured in this week’s Gospel reading.

Peter must be as shocked as those with him, but in faith he says to Jesus, “Master, it is good that we are here.”

Peter knows this event is a blessing from God, meant for him and the Apostles.

The miracles we experience each day are smaller, but can still be sources of joy for us.

We take time to acknowledge the good God provides for us and continue to express our gratitude to God.

Joseph of Arimathea

1st Reading: Gen 15:5-12, 17-18:
Then Yahweh brought him outside and said to him, “Look up at the sky and count the stars if you can. Your descendants will be like that.” Abram believed Yahweh who, because of this, held him to be an up – right man. And he said, “I am Yahweh who brought you from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land as your possession.” Then Abram asked, “My Lord, how am I to know that it shall be mine?” Yahweh replied, “Bring me a three year- old heifer, a three-year-old goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtle dove and a young pigeon.”

What a holy time we have entered into this Lent.

The season is truly a gift—it is the Church’s gift to her people—when we as a community of believers renew ourselves in prayer and in devotion through our actions, like fasting and giving alms.

Jesus was “filled with the Holy Spirit” and led out into the desert for forty days.

As we embark upon our own spiritual journey, we ask that God would fill us with the same Holy Spirit to be our guide.
