“I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live.” (John 11:25)

Reflection

The foundation of Christianity is Jesus’ resurrection. Lent is an act of faith. A time of preparation leading to the remembering and celebrating of the Paschal Triduum: Jesus’ crucifixion, death, and resurrection. During this time, we join Christ’s suffering with ours, the loss of loved ones receives new meaning, and we celebrate the joy of the resurrection’s promise.

Today’s Intention

O God, we believe that Jesus is the resurrection, the source of eternal life. However, there are times when we struggle with our faith. We ask that the Holy Spirit continue to be our companion in those moments, and Jesus, the light of our lives.

Peace and Goodness
