HOMILY FOR SATURDAY, FIFTH WEEK OF LENT YEAR A


Ezekiel 37:21-28; Psalm– Jeremiah 31:10-13; John 11:45-56

Fr. Dan Evbotokhai

In our first reading we see the prophet Ezekiel looking forward to a day when the Lord will unite the people under a new leader as a redeemed nation. In the gospel, we see the Pharisees taking the decision to kill Jesus. While their motives may have been honourable it was they who were misguided because they had closed their minds to the word of God and believed the Messiah to be a political and military leader. The words of Caiaphas also suggest that the death of Jesus might unite the people as the first reading noted. If we truly open our hearts to God then the unity which the gospel speaks of will be our portion.

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
