Wednesday, Fourth Week of Lent

March 29, 2017


Blessed Wednesday!

Two lines of thought came for today’s readings
& I’m only using one on Draw Near,
so I thought I’d post the other one here…

Isaiah 49:8-15 (God will provide for His people)
Psalm 145:8-18 “The Lord is kind and merciful”
+John 5:17-30 (Jesus only does His Father’s will)

The work
of God the Father,
through the Son,
is One,
a work
to create life,
and give it back again
when once
it has been lost…

but life
must be received
and utilized.

This is
where judgment lies.

or neglecting,
to receive
to death.

What judgment am I choosing (or neglecting to choose)?
Do I expect life on my own terms?

Blessed March!

Here are our Holy Father’s prayer intentions (as found here)
for this month dedicated to the St. Joseph:

That persecuted Christians may be supported
by the prayers and material help of the whole Church.

May God bless your prayer!
