Jesus writitngCalled to Conversion, Lent 2016: Christian Simplicity

This is the 5th Sunday of Lent. Today, Isaiah reminds us of God's continuing presence among us and that we need only to notice, by that presence, God is always doing something new. Pope Francis in Laudato Si says something similar, “God is intimately present to each being; God's divine presence continues the work of creation and because of this, something new can always emerge.” This is borne out in the Gospel when some scribes bring before Christ a woman caught in adultery. Jesus is so totally present to the woman and the situation that, she walks away, free, unharmed and new. Our relationship with Jesus is not so much one of “measuring up” as of coming to our own truth as the woman and the scribes did.

Called to Conversion, Lent 2016: Christian Simplicity

This is the Fourth Sunday of Lent, Laetare Sunday. On our pilgrimage of faith, we, like the Israelites, move through Exodus and Passover times, times of plenty and times of desperation. In our world, suffering happens; we all sin, “miss the mark” and fail. Thankfully we also can move with Christ through that suffering, and even death, into fullness of life. We can receive mercy, be reconciled, and come back to our true home.

Luke’s gospel continually invites us to welcome the outsiders, and challenges us to look at that which we have shut out or turned away. If we’re not clinging so tightly to our habits, judgments and justifications, we’re able to welcome the new – renewed life, a changed perspective, a stranger or foreigner, an unexpected gift… and maybe even one who has abandoned or betrayed us, as in today’s Prodigal story.
