Fifth Sunday in Lent

John 11:1-53

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

As our season of Lent 2005 comes to a head, we continue to be confronted with our own mortality. What was kicked off with Ash Wednesday—"you are dust and to dust you shall return"—continues in the little town of Bethany. The wages of sin is death, and Lazarus has received payment; he lies in the tomb, his body rotting and decaying as the physical effect of sin takes its toll—lying there four days, a bad odor has no doubt formed.

Fourth Sunday in Lent

Matthew 20:17-28

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Dear Baptized, once more, a selection from this morning's Gospel:

Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, "We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!"
