3rd Sunday in Lent


 Fr. Johnny Doherty, C.Ss.R.

 March 23rd 2014 – 3rd Sunday in Lent

Christ, the living water

“Those who worship must worship in spirit and in truth.” In the Gospel of this weekend, Jesus is very clear that rituals are not what our faith is about, important and all as they are, but that it is about the heart and about life. The same is true of love and it is here that couples are such important prophets for the life of the Church. Your love for each other has its origin in the heart and must constantly be restored to the heart. Your love is lived in every day life and needs to give a quality of goodness to each day both for yourselves and for all those around you. But it is not just couples who are called to put their hearts into all they do. All of us, single people, religious, and priests are called to live out our vocations in ways that will encourage others in faith, build them up in hope and draw them into the love of God and so come to live life to the full.


Morning Prayer, when together

Father, you have taught us to overcome our sins

by prayer, fasting and works of mercy.

When we are discouraged by our weakness,

give us confidence in your love.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

 During the day, when apart

Lord, by the grace of our sacrament of marriage

fill our lives with your joy and peace.

May we always be ready to forgive one another.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.


Evening/Night Prayer together

Lord, in sharing life with each other

may we always be tender and affectionate

and be brought together in unity and peace.

We make our prayer through Christ our Lord.

 Questions for Action for the week.

For your marriage: What is one of the nicest things that has happened between you recently?  How could you relive that this week?

 For others: Think of some group that is dealing with drug addiction.  How could you help them this week?
