1ST READING (JEREMIAH 31: 31 - 34)
This time God will write his law, not on tablets of stone, but in the hearts of his
people. All of them will then “know” him, that is, live in obedience to his law.
From the time of Paul, Christians have seen the fulfillment of this prophecy in
the covenant that was established by the blood of Christ and that led to the outpouring of
the Spirit into the hearts of believers.
2ND READING (HEBREWS 5: 7 - 9)
What Jeremiah anticipates ("the days are coming") Jesus fulfills ("Now is the time").
What is anticipated and fulfilled? A new covenant with all people, a new
people now drawn to Jesus himself.
In our society people often strive to gain glory for themselves, even if it means hurting
others. Followers of Jesus strive to gain glory too. But their glory is a free gift of God
granted to those who serve others by dying to self.
GOSPEL (JOHN 12: 20- 33)
The challenge of this gospel is to serve others, lose one's life, and die. All this, to gain
new life. Disciples do this in imitation of Jesus. Discipleship therefore, means a lifelong
growing into dying and rising. Learning to serve, we understand what losing our life
means. Losing our life, we understand what dying means. Dying, we receive the fruit:
fullness of life and a share in Christ's glorification.
INTERCESSORY PRAYER
There will be NO Intercessory Prayer on Thursday, 26th March 2015 in view of the Penitential
