Lenten Narrative - Raising of Lazarus...

Our thank to Fr Denis McBride CSsR and Redemptorist Publications

 

We now reflect on the raising of Lazarus, which appears only in the fourth Gospel.
When someone we love dies, we become acutely aware of a large absence in our life, an absence that seems to fill the world. One person is dead; the world is depopulated. So much that appeared important before now pales into insignificance beside this hard loss.

Jesus felt this loss too but addresses it in the most remarkable way.
