4th Sunday ofLent 2013

For those attending the 2nd Scrutiny, we will be hearing the story of the man born blind from John's gospel... a story that uses the blindness of others to see that Jesus is the light:

The Word for the 2nd Scrutiny (4th Sunday of Lent Cycle A):
        1 Samuel 16:1b, 6-7, 10-13a
        Psalm 23:1-3a, 3b-4, 5, 6
        Ephesians 5:8-14
        John 9:1-41

For those attending one of the regular Masses, we will be reading the story of the Prodigal Son... a parable unique to Luke's gospel. This popularity of this parable stands the test of time because the characters and their motivations ring true for so many of us, and yet we find it difficult to accept the conclusion:

The Word for the 4th Sunday of Lent:
        Joshua 5:9a, 10-12
        Psalm 34:2-3, 4-5, 6-7
        2 Corinthians 5:17-21
        Luke 15:1-3, 11-32
