Jeremiah 31:31-34

Beloved, this is what You do for us in the Sacrament of Baptism, You give us the gift of faith and thus Your law of love is etched on our hearts.  You make us children of Your Father and Your brothers and sisters. You also give us Your Own Holy Spirit who makes our bodies His temple and who leads us into the knowledge of God and the wisdom of God.  Thank You my Beloved for all You have done for us by calling us by name and inviting us to be Your very Own.

Hebrews 5:7-9

We know because You have revealed this truth to us that the two keys to the Father's heart are obedience and humility.  You are the Master, the Teacher, the Lord and You shown us by example how to obey in perfect humility the Father's will, His commandment, which is to love God first and then our neighbor as ourselves.

Psalm 51:3-4

A clean heart is only possible through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  True contrition, repentance and forgiveness are found here, on our knees before Your anointed, confessing like the prodigal son that we have sinned before heaven and before You.  it is here that the Father hurries to restore us once more into His family and into loving fellowship with You.

John 12:20-33

You died for all whether they know it or not.  Salvation is given to all thorugh You.  The gates of heaven now stand open and we enter only thorugh You.  But like You we too must be prepared to die to self and to sin.  Only in dying with You can we hope to inherit the salvation You obtained for us by Your passion, death and glorious Resurrection..  Yes, the gates of heaven are open but I must be prepared to die to everything that isnot of the Kingdom if I am to be restored to life in You.  help me Lord!!!.

  1. Thank you Myra for posting readings for the 5th Sunday of Lent B. Could I have your permission to include the image for Jeremiah 31: 31-34 into our bible study material? Currently, there are two groups of about 8 - 10 people. I would include your name and the website URL. Take care. Blessings.
