Sixth Sunday of Lent


Mt 26: 14 – 27: 66

As we live through this time of trial for humanity we will reflect on a few phrases from this Sunday’s Gospel

My Father, if it is possible... These words are reflected in the first beatitude. (Mt 5: 3)

Blessed are those attuned to God they will find their true values and right principles for life or

Healing and strength come to us as we live balanced lives seeing God in self, in others, in creation. or

Those who live lives of integrity and , hearing the Eternal Word will radiate Godness – Goodness.

The Word of God comes to us through Scripture, Creation, Events of our Lives and the Eucharistic Celebration.

In living out Jesus’ values we experience God’s breath flowing into us from all creation.                                                             

Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father… No one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son wishes to reveal him . Mt 11: 27

To have seen me is to have seen the Father.  I am in the Father and the Father is in me.  The words that I say to you I do not speak as from myself: it is the Father, living in me, who is doing this work. Jn 14: 9,10

My friend. (Mt 26: 50)  How do you relate to God?  In this time when the whole of humanity is suffering where do you think God is.  I heard of person ask;  “I wonder what part God has in this?   I do not know how this question should be answered.  That remains a question for each one of us to answer.  Look around you and see how wonderfully people are responding.  Whatever you did to the least of my brethren you did it to me.  ( Mt 25: 40)  We are certainly seeing the best qualities in humanity.

My Father, if it is possible … (Mt 26: 39)

Watch and pray.  (Mt 26: 41)

Get up let us go. (Mt 26: 46)
