Homily for 5th Sunday of Lent

 

Dearly Beloved, we gather on this 5th Sunday of Lent. Another great sign is given for our reflection. A great miracle. A dead man comes back to life. Death will continue to be our fiercest enemy.  How sad it is to lose a loved one. It’s more sad when we were not there in one way or another when they needed us.

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round,
or listened to rain slapping the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight,
or gazed at the sun fading into the night?

(Have you ever taken time to observe nature so closely?)

You better slow down, don’t dance so fast,
time is short, the music won’t last.
