5th week of Lent
Cast of Characters
Jesus Martha Mary The Crowd Lazarus The Disciples
Read the Gospel – who are you in the story?
Which character is the most challenging for you? Why?
Suggestions for Reflection:
“I am the Resurrection and the life, whoever believes in me even if they die, will live and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” This is the question posed to us by the Lord. How do I answer?
“Unbind him and let him go free.” What are those fears, attitudes, addictions from which we need the Lord to free us by raising us up?
Do I believe that whatever seems dead in me—my faith, my perspective, my waning hope, my ability to love—can be brought back to life by the power of Jesus Christ at work in me?
This is our last chance–the last week of Lent.
What will you bring to the cross?
Close your eyes and hold this burden in the palm of your hand.
Contemplate for just one moment what you’re trading it in for,
if you’re ready to let go.
