    Fifth Sunday of Lent
    April 2, 2017

    Pray with the Word

    As once in the vision, O God, your prophet summoned the spirit
    so that dry bones stood up alive, and as once your Son stood fearless at death’s door
    calling Lazarus to come forth alive, raise us up with Christ from the death of sin,
    that all of us, the elect and the baptized, may be unbound and set free.
    Through Christ our Lord.
    Amen.

    Prepare for the Word

    Use these questions to prepare yourself to hear the readings before attending Mass:

    When you pray, do you really believe that God hears and answers your call?

    Christ tells us that whoever lives and believes in him will have eternal life. How can you more deeply live and believe in Christ?

    Reflect on the Word

    Use these questions to reflect on the readings after attending Mass:

    In today’s Gospel, we see Jesus’ human nature when he weeps for his dead friend. What does it mean for your faith to reflect on the human nature of Jesus?

    What is something in your life that you need to let go of (or let die) so that you might rise to new life with Jesus?

    Act on the Word

    Use these ideas to act on the readings during the week:
    We hear in today’s Gospel that Jesus is the Resurrection and the life. He tells us that whoever believes in him will have eternal life. What does belief in God look like? Christ tells us repeatedly in the Gospel accounts that in order to follow him, we must love one another. In order to begin or, rather, (hopefully) continue to love one another, your weekly challenge is to do three random acts of kindness a day. This could be anything from holding the door open for classmates at school or washing the dishes after a meal without being asked. At the end of each day, reflect on these acts and think about what difference you made in those people’s life
