WELCOMES YOU!!

 

Third Sunday in Lent

24 March 2019

The warnings are plentiful and blunt on the third Sunday in Lent.  Lent is a season of repentance.  Cut it out or get cut down!  The warnings are accompanied by God's invitation to attentiveness: "Incline your ear, and come to me, listen, so that you may live."  The landowner's ultimatum is forestalled by the gardener's readiness to till the ground one more year.  That is good news for all of us.  Thanks be to God.

(from Sundays and Seasons, 2019)

Isaiah 55:1-9

To those who have experienced long years in exile, the return to their homeland is a celebration of abundant life.  God calls them into an everlasting covenant of love.  Those who return o the Lord will enjoy new life and forgiveness, because God's ways are not our ways.

Psalm 63:1-8

O God, eagerly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you.

1 Corinthians 10:1-13

Paul uses images from Hebrew story and prophecy to speak the truth of Jesus Christ:  He is our rock, our water, our food, and our drink.  Christ is the living sign of God's faithfulness.

Luke 13:1-9

Asked about current tragic events, Jesus turns a lesson about whether suffering is deserved into a hard call to obedience.  He then tells a parable that holds out hope that the timeline for ultimate judgment will be tempered by patience.

 

Commemeration of Patrick, bishop, missionary to Ireland

17 March 2019

c. 389 - born in Britain

c. 405 - began six years as a slave in Ireland

417 - ordained a priest

432 - sent to Ireland as a bishop to continue evangelization of its pagan population

c. 461 - died in Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland

Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is remembered as having Christianized Ireland.  He baptized hundreds of people and established monasteries.  The story is told that in 433 on the Hill of Slane he inaugurated the lighting of a bonfire at the beginning of the Easter services.  The legend of his expelling snakes from Ireland can be seen as symbolic of his expelling evil from the land.  Often in art Patrick is shown holding a shamrock, which it issaid he used to teach the Irish about the Trinity.

Against all Satan's spells and wiles,

Against false words of heresy,

Against the knowledge that defiles,

Against the heart's idolatry,

Against the wizard's evil craft,

Against the death wound and the burning,

The choking wave and the poisoned shaft,

Protect me, Christ, till thy returning.

---from Patrick's hymn, or lorica
