REFLECTIONS ON:
RAISED UP BY THE MESSIAH
Last week, when Jesus referred to the destruction of the
temple, the account from today’s first reading is what would
have come to the minds of his listeners. But, as Jesus was
speaking on a deeper level, so does today’s first reading. In
the first paragraph we hear that Israel had, in effect,
“fallen” already through its infidelity to the covenant. Lest
we get too cozy, this account reminds us that God, though
just, loving, and merciful, is capable of punishing sin when
that sin is unrepentant. But we are also reminded that God,
rich in mercy, anoints individuals to be vessels of salvation
as well (in Hebrew, King Cyrus of Persia is called
“messiah”). In the Gospel reading, we hear of another Messiah being “lifted up” for our salvation in one of the
best known passages from the New Testament.
1. As Lent concludes and we enter Holy Week, how will
you keep your gaze steadfast upon the cross of
Christ? The Son of God came into the world to raise
us who had fallen.

Thank You to all who prayed
in front of Planned Parenthood on February 25th.
You are the Voice for the voiceless!
St. Patrick’s saying seems to apply to you:
GOD UPHOLDS ME
I take for my sureties: The power of God to guide
me, the might of God to uphold me, the wisdom of
God to teach me, the eye of God to watch over me,
the ear of God to hear me, the word of God to give
me speech, the hand of God to protect me, the way of
God to go before me, the shield of God to shelter me.
Let us pray for all of our faithful departed,
especially Ana Burke, Beatriz Argomaniz,
Peggy Searle, for victims of violence and war,
and for family and friends left behind.
