MARCH 29   FIFTH SUNDAY OF LENT  

Readings: Ez 37:12-14/Rom 8:8-11/Jn 11:1-45 or 11:3-7, 17, 20-27, 33b-45

And Jesus wept.  This is the shortest verse in all of scripture, but it tells us so much.  Our God weeps with us.  He is Lord of all, yet he knows each of us personally, intimately.   He is uniquely familiar with each of us as he is with his friends Martha and Mary.  Even though he knows he will raise Lazarus from the dead, he enters into the sorrow of Mary and Martha, the same way he wants to enter into our lives and our struggles.
