Christ the Resurrection & the Life

5th Sunday of Lent (A)

This Sunday’s gospel completes the great “triptych” from John’s gospel of Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well, his healing of the man born blind, and concluding this Sunday with Jesus’ raising of Lazarus from the dead. In these readings given to us on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Sundays of Lent, Jesus is revealed as the Living Water, the Light of the World, and now as the Resurrection and the Life.

In his video this week, Deacon Matt talks about the significance of Lazarus’ resurrection and how we today are called to participate in the divine life of the Spirit offered to us by Christ.
