March 21, 2015 (John 7:40-53)

At weekday mass starting with the 4th week of Lent, our gospels come from John and are a continual reading of those parts we won’t hear at Sunday masses. We keep hearing about people who want to “arrest” Jesus but can’t, for one reason or another. It is a journey toward Holy Week and His death. Again, we hear an argument about “where Jesus comes from, ” or, in other words, who is He really? It’s the same age-old question we have to ask ourselves. There will be attempts in our society to tell us that Jesus was just a good man who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. That’s why he died. But, we know better, don’t we? “Forgive us when we limit who You are, O Christ.”
