March 24, 2019: ​Reflection for the Third Sunday of Lent

by Barbara Hickey, Notre Dame Associate

We have all been through Lenten practices many times in our lives and we continue to be saddened by the events that happened to Jesus during the final weeks leading to his death.

As we spend our time meditating on the life and death of Jesus, it is difficult to think of what he went through. He always knew his fate and although he asked our Father to take this suffering from him, he was destined to die for our sins to save us. Would anyone of us be ready and willing to do what Jesus did so we could spend eternity with the Father?

Let us continue to pray and meditate into the next weeks of this Lenten journey as we await the glorious Resurrection of Jesus.
