Word for the Weekend: April 6

Raising of Lazarus by Dave Zelenka

This interesting painting gives us Lazarus' view of his being raised from the dead.  Mary and Martha, his sisters, wait outside the tomb with Jesus, waiting for Lazarus to come forth.

The raising of Lazarus is this Sunday's gospel text.  The first reading, from Ezekiel, finds the Lord promising to open all our graves and have us rise from them!  The second reading, from Romans, reminds us that the Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead will raise us along with him. 

A good way to prepare for Mass is to study the readings and background materials on them which you can find here. Got kids? Then you'll want to take a look here, too.
