A Sunday Reflection

Fifth Sunday of Lent (Cycle A)

“Master, the one you love is ill,” is the beginning of this Sunday’s Gospel. We don’t understand, it is difficult to understand, what use is suffering and why God allows it. Lazarus will die before Jesus arrives. However, the gospel tells us that this illness is “for the glory of God.”

Before Lazarus’s tomb, the Lord is moved to tears. He, the victor over death, who has just proclaimed himself the Resurrection and the Life, weeps and shares in Martha’s and Mary’s sorrow for their brother, his friend who has died. And then, he will raise him up: “Untie him and let him go.”

We also need to be untied by Jesus, to be freed from the bonds of sin, free from all that keeps us apart from Him so that we may share in the resurrection that is promised to those who believe in Him.

As we face the fears provoked by the current coronavirus pandemic, let us place our hope in Jesus, Who raised Lazarus, that we be spared of illness and that those who suffer may recover soon. God bless you.

Fr. Luis R. Largaespada

A group of our parishioners met Archbishop Wenski on March 4. We thank Rolando and Irene Silva for hosting the event.

Why Cover the Crucifix?

IT SEEMS STRANGE that during the most sacred time of year we cover everything … in our churches, even the crucifix. [Yet] the Church recommends this practice [of covering images and the crucifix from the 5th Sunday of Lent until the Easter Vigil] to heighten our senses and build within us a longing for Easter Sunday.

But why go through such lengths to cover up images that are designed to raise our hearts and minds toward heaven? First of all, we use veils to alert us of the special time that we are in. These veils are a forceful reminder to get ready [for the Sacred Triduum].

Secondly, the veils focus our attention on the words being said at Mass [during the reading of the Passion]. Our senses … focus on the striking words from the Gospel and truly enter into the scene.

Third, the Church uses veils to produce a heightened sense of anticipation for Easter Sunday. And therein lies the whole point: the veils are not meant to be there forever. The unveiling before the Easter Vigil is a great reminder of our own life on earth. We live in a “veiled” world, in exile from our true home. It is only through our own death that the veil is lifted and we are finally able to see the beauty of everything in our lives.
