Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion: 'Hosanna!'

Scripture for Life: Today may be the most overwhelming day of the overwhelming holy week to come. Palm Sunday takes us step by step through Jesus' last days and then leaves us holding emptiness, seeing only death.


Fourth Sunday of Lent: Christifying vision

Scripture of Life: What would it mean to allow our eyes to be Christified? Jesus of Nazareth is no longer walking through our streets. But we do believe in his promise to remain with us until the end of time. 


Third Sunday of Lent: We thirst

Scripture for Life: What is it we most desire in life? When and how do we drink from the font of living water? How are we called to invite others to the well?


Second Sunday of Lent: To the mountain

Scripture for Life: Jesus told his friends not to talk about their experience until after his resurrection. That's because in that moment they were like people who had just fallen in love; in their exuberance, they thought they understood it all clearly.
