Homily, Fifth Sunday of Lent, April 2, 2017


Jesus wept. The shortest verse in the Bible yet the most powerful thought. Jesus is perturbed at the death of his friend Lazarus. He deeply feels the suffering and pain of humanity. His voice gives life to Lazarus as he calls him to come out of the tomb. Only God can give such life. Many came to believe in Jesus. Do we believe only God can take our dying and bring us life?
