Reflection for March 30, 2014

As Spring unfolds, so can and does our spiritual life

by Sister Carolyn Zahringer

Spring has recently arrived, according to the calendar. We all know it takes time for spring to arrive in its fullness. Lent is the Church's "springtime." Just as in nature, spring is a time for "buds" to prepare anew for a new season of life and growth.

The Gospel of John tells of a man born blind, who now can see because of his encounter with Jesus, the Lord. The communion antiphon for the day is pulled from the Gospel message. It is the core message. "The Lord anointed my eyes: I went, I washed, I saw and I believed in God." (Jn. 9:11, 38)

We are touched by God and we are empowered to respond actively.

Look closely.

A really nice reflection. thank you.

I agree with Donna. Thanks.

Thanks for connecting Spring to Lent!

Thanks, Carrie. Lent, being the spring-time of the Church, focuses on life and growth and all that is good. I appreciate that reminder.
