Word for the Weekend: March 17

This coming weekend brings us to the Fifth Sunday of Lent.

You'll find the scripture readings here along with some brief commentary on them.  If you're bringing children to Mass with you, check here for hints on helping them prepare to hear the Word.

The first lesson this weekend sounds themes of Exodus and waters flowing in the desert: hints of what's to come in our Holy Week celebrations. The words from St. Paul in the second lessor were written when he was in prison and in danger of death and are thus profound words of faith in the most dire circumstances. The gospel, from John, tells the story of the woman caught in adultery - a familiar and sobering story for all of us as we approach the end of Lent.
