Raised in a Jewish family, Jesus was steeped in covenant language. He probably read the Book of Jeremiah multiple times. Jeremiah records a promise of a new covenant which will be written upon the heart. There will no longer be a need to teach friends and relatives HOW to know the Lord. (Jer. 31:33,34)
John's Gospel records Jesus' words for today: "... unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit." Jn. 12:24
Rooted in the Cross, Word, and Eucharist ... compassionately responding through prayer, presence, and hospitality.
