January Series ~ Hope Restored!
2020 has been a challenging year. Many people grew discouraged in light of the pandemic, economic and educational struggles, and political tumult. Jesus provides us with the grace to not lose heart and to be strengthened to live and share the light of the Gospel. We hear how the touch of Jesus restored the hope of those who were burdened or downcast in the Gospel of John. He will restore our hope as well! Our priests will reflect on these powerful scriptural passages and help us apply them to our lives. Please invite family and friends to join you at the Church or via livestream on the following Wednesdays from 7:00-7:45pm.
Jan. 13 - “The Samaritan Woman at the Well” (John 4:1-42) Presented by Fr. John The Samaritan woman in today’s Gospel had made many mistakes looking for love. Jesus helps her to realize that it is a life-giving relationship with God that will quench her spiritual thirst and bring her soul satisfaction. We will explore how this Gospel connects with our lives.
Jan. 20 - “The Woman Caught in Adultery” (John 8:1-11) Presented by Msgr. Knox St. Augustine described the interaction between Jesus and the woman caught in adultery as “great misery encounters great mercy”. Jesus would help her to see her own dignity, to receive forgiveness, and to find a new beginning.
Jan. 27 - “The Raising of Lazarus” (John 11:1-44) Presented by Fr. Grismer
Sin and death can have a binding power that can seem overwhelming. The grace that Jesus brings sets us free from shame and guilt. The power of the resurrection sets us free from the power of death. Jesus brings hope and new life.
