The Gospel reading for the Mass for Saturday of the Fifth Week of Lent shows the Pharisees with an interesting dilemma. Their power was threatened by Jesus. He was performing signs and working miracles showing His Divine nature and people were turning to Him instead of their traditional religious leaders. Yet as the leaders of the Jewish religion, you would think that they would feel obligated to serve Him.
USCCB – NAB – John 11:47-48: “…What are we going to do? This man is performing many signs. If we leave him alone, all will believe in him…”
Has Jesus worked signs and miracles in your life? Has there been enough “God-incidences” in your life to make you realize that Jesus has a Divine plan for you (and only you?)
Holy Week is coming up. It is the week leading to the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus. Actions that He had willingly undertaken to save us from eternal death.
