5th Sunday of Lent – Redemption and Restoration

Join Dina Marie Hale on this weekly broadcast as she reflects upon the readings for the 4th Sunday in Lent, Year C. The readings for the Mass are from Isaiah, Psalm 126, Philippians and the Gospel of John. Today in the Gospel Jesus writes in the sand and offers mercy to a woman accused of adultery. Jesus extends his mercy to each one of us, and invites us as well as the woman to not sin any more. Let us reflect upon the unconditional Love of God for us, receive his mercy and reject sin. Now, join us for this Lenten reflection with Dina Marie.

Prayer in Time of Sorrow

Father of all mercies and God of consolation, You love us eternally and transform the shadows of death into the dawn of life.

Look upon our grief; be our refuge and comfort so that our sadness and sorrow may turn into the light and peace of Your presence. In dying, Your Son destroyed death; in rising, He restored life.

Grant that at the end of our earthly pilgrimage we may be found in His company with our brothers and sisters. There, You shall wipe away every tear. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
