Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
March 27, 2021 – Saturday
Gospel: John 11:45-56
“This man is performing many signs. One man must die instead of killing a whole nation.”
The Jews were afraid of all the signs Jesus was performing. And unfortunately, from that day on, they started to plan to kill Christ.
How are we? Do we also see signs that show we or others are also consciously or unconsciosly killing Christ in us, in the other? What can we do? What can you do you may ask... how about we counter it by willingly laying down our life for the God, for humanity.
Lord, we will die for you each day, each time we give up on anger, holding back our tongues (not grudgingly) on someone who hurt us, offering our pain for a sick person. Mama Mary, we look up to you for patience and humility.
