Thursday, fourth week of Lent

JMJ

Blessed Thursday!

Entrance Antiphon:
Let the hearts that seek the lord rejoice;
turn to the Lord and His strength; constantly seek His Face.

Collect:
We invoke Your mercy in humble prayer, O Lord,
that You may cause us, Your servants,
corrected by penance and schooled by good works,
to persevere sincerely in Your commands
and come safely to the paschal festivities.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Readings:
Exodus 32:7-14 (Moses intercedes for the Israelites, who are worshiping the golden calf)
Psalm 106:19-23 “Lord, remember us, for the love You bear Your people”
+John 5:31-47 (prophesy points to Jesus as Messiah)

All the evidence
is in,

conclusions
inescapable–
except to those
who didn’t want to know,
who closed their eyes
and stopped their ears
lest they might hear
that they were wrong.

The heat is on.
And even Moses
cannot save you now.

What part of God’s message am I rejecting because it’s not what I want to hear?
