Seems like it’s been a terribly long winter...Another strange Sunday with Masses without any congregation.
Most folk are familiar with the Lazarus story. It’s one of the great RCIA Lenten gospels and it’s the gospel for today’s Mass. Hopefully you maybe get a chance to sit down and get a read through it, on your own or maybe as a family, or hear it in one of the live streamed Masses from our Cathedral.
Lazarus’ sister, Martha, says, “Yes, Lord, I believe”. When did you last use these words? Today, try to repeat these words and believe. Maybe when out for your once a day exercise, or while sitting in the house self isolating, say “Yes, Lord, I believe”.
If standing at your back door tonight gazing up at the stars in the sky, (here’s hoping it’s a clear sky) say “Yes, Lord, I believe”.
While marvelling at nature, maybe the daffs & snowdrops coming up in your garden, say “Yes, Lord, I believe”.
Even in times when we might find it hard to believe, or find it hard and a struggle to pray, say “Yes, Lord, I believe”.
It’s good to repeat these words and repeat them often.
Remember, and try and catch the 10am or 12noon or 5.15pm Mass live streamed today from our Cathedral. Visit www.mcmedia.tv/camera/st-andrews-cathedral
Be Still and Know that God is in charge.
