3/26/23 - Jesus Raises Lazarus - Cycle A
This Fifth Sunday of Lent Jesus hears that his friend Lazarus is very sick, and when he returns to see Lazarus he has been dead for four days. His sisters Mary and Martha are very sad and Martha asks him why didn’t he come sooner? He could have healed Lazarus. Jesus said to Martha your brother will rise again. Yes, on the last day she replies. Do you believe that people who believe in me die, but that I give them life forever? She replies that he is God’s son. Jesus asks where he was buried and when he sees the tomb he weeps with the others. Jesus asks that the stone on the tomb be moved. He prays and commands Lazarus to come out from the tomb. He raises Lazarus from the dead. News of Jesus’ raising Lazarus travels fast. Many people come to believe in him, but many others are questioning his miracles and actions.
When Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, he shows us his power over death. We believe that by Jesus’ death and Resurrection, he conquered death and won eternal life for us. Our faith calls us to be like Martha and Mary, and believe that Jesus is the Resurrection and eternal life.
As a family watch video in its entirety and then ask each other these questions.
Why do you think Jesus wept? When someone loses a loved one, how can you comfort them in their sorrow? Do you ever think of Jesus weeping with you when you are sad?
Family Prayer: Jesus you are the Resurrection and the life. Help us to live a life of compassion and trust. Amen.

March 26, 2023- 5th Sunday of Lent
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Lent seems to be long for forty days, but it passes very fast when we stay busy with daily preparation for Jesus Resurrection. Next week we will celebrate Palm Sunday, and the following weekend is Easter. Our Lenten preparations and efforts to be transformed by practice of extra prayer, fasting and alms giving, hopefully brought us closer to the Lord.
Today we have the Gospel of Lazarus being allowed to die, and then being raised from the dead back to life. And interestingly enough, Jesus calls Lazarus dying: “being asleep”, and Jesus promises to awaken him. Is Jesus mocking the death? Is he comparing the death to a sleep? Is it a parable?
3/26/23 - QUINTO DOMINGO DE CUARESMA
Queridas Hermanas y Hermanos,
La Cuaresma parece larga por cuarenta días, pero pasa muy rápido cuando nos mantenemos ocupados con la preparación diaria para la Resurrección de Jesus. La semana que viene celebraremos el Domingo de Ramos, y el siguiente fin de semana es Semana Santa. Nuestras preparaciones para la Cuaresma y los esfuerzos para ser transformados mediante la práctica de oración extra, ayuno y limosnas, esperamos que nos hayan acercado más al Señor.
Hoy tenemos el Evangelio de que a Lázaro se le permitió morir y luego resucito de entre los muertos a la vida. Y curiosamente, Jesus llama a Lázaro moribundo: “estar dormido”, y Jesus promete despertarlo. ¿Jesus se está burlando de la muerte? ¿Está comparando la muerte con un sueño? ¿Es una parábola?
