Fourth Sunday of Lent (Laetare Sunday)
Seen Jesus lately?
If you want to “see” Jesus, you know where to look, right? Just stop in at your neighborhood church and the Lord will be there during Mass on the altar in the consecrated bread and wine, or in the tabernacle, or in a monstrance during adoration or benediction of the blessed sacrament. But he is to be seen in other places as well. Scripture and the church teach us that God is present in others, in the poor, and in the image and likeness that looks back at us in the mirror. Church is a great place to see Jesus. So is the rest of the world.
Today’s readings: 1 Samuel 16:1b, 6-7, 10-13a; Ephesians 5:8-14; John 9:1-41 (31).
“You have seen him, and the one speaking with you is he.”
