Readings for 5th Sunday in Lent
Ezekiel 37.1-14,, Romans 8.6-11; and John 11:1-45
Tuesday 28 March
What image does ‘the hand of the Lord coming upon you’, conjure up? – Ezekiel 37:1. To be touched by God is more than a passing brush past; sending, at the most, an inconsequential shiver down the spine quickly to be forgotten. Those who have been so touched in the scriptures, bear witness to its life changing nature. Those who are sick are healed, those bound are freed, those in the valley of the shadow of death live.
Question: What comes to mind when you reflect upon so much in the world today? Do you sometimes think that there is much that could, should, be touched by God in way that would make a difference; a change for the better?
Prayer: Then reach out and make that touch, for “yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.” – Teresa of Avila.
