5th Sunday of Lent

Posted on Updated on

Originally delivered on March 20, 1988

Readings: Jeremiah 31: 31-34, Hebrews 5:7-9; John 12:20-33

Today we hear that we should not be legalistic but boldly loving with God’s Spirit in our hearts. We are challenged to look beyond the law, which often provides easy or black and white answers, to find the spirit of the law.  Fr. Healy points to the first reading of Jeremiah which says, “ …I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers…I will place my law with them, and write it upon their hearts.”
