What shall I return to the Lord for all that he has given me?
Dedication of the Lateran Basilica Ez 47:1-2, 8-9,12; 1 Cor. 3:9-11,16-17, John
2:13-22 Dying and Rising
Jesus told the apostles that he would destroy the temple and rise again in three
days. On the road to Emmaus, Jesus’ resurrected body was different, yet still a
human body. Once they recognized Him in His transformed state, they thought back
to the idea of the destruction of the temple. The experience confirmed and
deepened their faith. With our bodies and souls we share in the love of the Trinity.
At the resurrection of the dead we will be raised body and soul. The body and soul
together for the glory of God is the person fully alive.
Reflection: As disciples, how are we serving and honoring our God? How are we
bringing others to God’s love?
Vocation Prayer: Father, may our hearts be open to hear your call in our lives.
We pray especially for Rev. Mark Smith, Joshua Duncan-Seminarian, Deacon Stan
Buczko, & Sister Mary of the Angels Kleman OCD. Prayer for Our Families: We
pray for our parish families, especially the family of Jeremy & Lori.
