Reflections in Lenten 2019

3rd Sunday: Year C


Dig on and on relentlessly

The readings of this 3rd Sunday of year C draw our attention on perseverance. The Gospel reveals two accidental facts, and a wine grower with a barren tree that creates discontent. While the first reading from Exodus returns to the call and mission of Moses, St. Paul in the second reading reminds the Corinthians that the recriminations lead away from God.

  I Hear The Cry Of My People

Each one of us, individually, as a family, as a church, a community, a nation etc, go through phases of life that are fluid and diverse.  Each phase is an opportunity of change, of growth, of a shift from an undesirable situation to a desirable one. Sometimes this move is a conscious effort, but other times it takes a lot of painful experiences until the cup of endurance runs over, and the person arrives at a point he or she admits, ‘I can take it no longer'.

Let The Strong Not fall!

Today’s meditation focuses on 1 Cor 10: 1-6, 10-12. For this 3rd Sunday of Lent, these passages are about the example of Israel in the desert. Talking about crossing desert, one precisely makes reference to the suffering of humans. How does man suffer from his misfortunes? Many people find themselves in situations which God does not like.                   Ornela Emefa Pakou |Loyola Hope Center (CEL), Lome, Togo                               Read More | Português | Français
