FIFTH SUNDAY OF LENT - MARCH 22, 2015
Jer 31:31-34; Ps 51; Heb 5:7-9
Gospel: Jn 12:20-33
Today’s reading speaks to our pathway to salvation, which
is through Jesus; “whoever serves me must follow me.” We
began our journey with our baptism and continue by living a
Christian life according to His teachings, “For my yoke is easy
and my burden light,” Mt 11:30. In Paul’s letter to the Romans
he says, “We were indeed buried with him through baptism
into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by
the glory of the Father, we too might live in newness of life,”
Rm 6:7-8. In this way we became that grain of wheat that dies
and produces much fruit. “For the love of God is this, that we
keep his commandments,” 1Jn 5:3.

Weekly Scripture Challenge~ by Tim Rimmer
“This is the covenant I will make … I will place my law within them and write
it upon their hearts.” The covenant of their fathers was the Mosaic Law.
There were 613 commandments in the Law. They believed their salvation
came by being obedient to the Law, but the Law became a stumbling block
no one could keep. The covenant Jeremiah speaks of is in Christ. The New Testament
teaches us our salvation is through Christ. He lives in our hearts; we are His Temple. What
are the greatest commandments we need to live by? See Mk 12:29-31.
Sacred Heart Enthronement:
Only two more opportunities this year to
attend this special Lenten event.
The last meeting will be Tuesday, March 31 at
6:15 p.m.
Would you like more graces to live a holy
life? Are you looking for peace in your
home? Do you want protection for
your family from the evil one? If so, the
devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is
being promoted throughout the Diocese
of Columbus! Make the decision to
Enthrone your home to His Sacred Heart.
Contact Sue and Mike Gill for more
information at 614-529-4108.
The last week will be another special night
with spoken word and music for Holy
Week. Everyone attending will be invited to
participate. Don’t miss it!
