An Evening of Reflection

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Please join me in Sacred Heart church for an evening of reflection based on the “Seven Last Words of Christ” on Friday, March 22, 2013.  Traditionally, these seven short sayings uttered by Jesus on the cross are called words of Forgiveness, Salvation, Relationship, Abandonment, Distress, Triumph and Reunion.

This tradition of the seven sayings is an example of the Christian approach to Gospel harmony, in which  material from the four Gospels is combined to produce  an account that goes beyond each Gospel.

I will give the reflections on each of the “Seven Last Words of Christ” accompanied by Dr. Edward Martin on the violin on  March 22nd at 7:00pm.

Fr. Yanas

A Story About Us!

If today’s Gospel passage had a headline it could read; “A Story About Us.”  First it is a reminder that judging people is a dangerous activity and secondly a story about how Jesus looks upon sin.  Clearly, Jesus is doing the judging instead of the scribes and Pharisees much to their dismay and disgrace.  The main lesson is on the manner in which Jesus deals lovingly, gently, patiently and with forgiveness to her.  Our own work during this Lenten period is like that of the woman: truthfully face our sinfulness and remain faithfully with Jesus!  “Go and sin no more” will be Jesus’ reply to us!
