GOSPEL  REFLECTION

Martha and Mary were people of faith but Jesus led them to an even deeper faith. Who were the people who led you to a deeper faith in God? Remember them and give thanks.
Martha and Mary were struggling to come to terms with their bereavement. Who and what have helped you in similar situations?
Lazarus can be seen as a symbol of people and groups that are written off as dead (sometimes by themselves), and yet through faith come back to life again.

 

DAFFODIL  DAY – Thanks
