SATURDAY OF THE FIFTH WEEK OF LENT APRIL 1, 2023






Gospel

"What are we going to do?

REFLECTION


So the chief priests and the Pharisees convened the Sanhedrin, "What are we going to do?"


"So be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and handed himself over for us as a sacrificial offering to God for a fragrant aroma." (Ephesians 5:1)


Have you ever been at crossroads, thinking, "What are we going to do?" How we act and behave during chaos, where there is no kindness nor love of God and neighbor speaks volumes.


Put love where there is no love, where there is despair sow hope, be the healing balm in disagreements, if wounded carry your cross, practice self denial, die to self, do not let go, be kinder to your neighbors, live in peace with one another, always be grateful for God's grace, do not be deceitful, manipulative nor intimidating. Let love and kindness teach you.


No enemy or thief can succeed where there is fear of God. No enemy can enter or win.


Jesus was sought out by many who believed in Him. Those who opposed Him were looking out for their own interests. Caiphas, the chief priest who was in hot pursuit for the world, was more concerned about his status though signs and prophecies were coming to fulfillment. The plot to kill Jesus has begun.


God worked the greatest good in their evil. "We know that all things work for good for those who love, who are called according to His purpose." (Romans 8:28) " In a few days the passion and death of His Son will open the path to new life, the Resurrection.

God is able to use all things for our good.


May our souls be in God's eternal glory.


God Bless You
