Holy Week

Jesus, my God, I adore You, here present in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar, where You wait day and night to be our comfort while we await Your unveiled presence in heaven. Jesus, my God, I adore You in all places where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved and where sins are committed against this Sacrament of Love. Jesus, my God, I adore You for all time, past, present and future, for every soul that ever was, is or shall be created. Jesus, my God, who for us has endured hunger and cold, labor and fatigue, I adore You. Jesus, my God, who for my sake has deigned to subject Yourself to the humiliation of temptation, to the perfidy and defection of friends, to the scorn of Your enemies, I adore You. Jesus, my God, who for us has endured the buffeting of Your passion, the scourging, the crowning with thorns, the heavy weight of the cross, I adore You.

Fift Lent Sunday

Jesus is informed of the serious condition of his friend Lazarus and plans to visit him later in spite of the fact that some people threaten his life. Jesus buys his time to show the greatness of God. He delays his intervention, so Lazarus dies. He has something in mind.

Jesus moves to Bethany where his friends Mary, Martha, and Lazarus, now dead, reside. It is now time to show God’s power. The disciples have a faint understanding of what he will do. They believe in him but soon they will realize something more than what they know about Jesus.

Jesus performs a miracle. He makes Lazarus rise from the dead. This will stun his disciples. This will also make a strong statement to the authorities in Jerusalem who seek to kill him.

This is his last miracle before he gets killed. We should understand the miracle assign. John uses the Greek word semeion (sign), not dynamis (miracle) to indicate Jesus’ extraordinary intervention to human events.

 

Jesus does wonderful things to deliver a message and to point to us believers a deeper reality in which we should live as children of God. Jesus comes to intervene in our powerlessness.
