Coronavirus Underscores Jesus’ Counsel: Sin No More, Lest Worse Happen – Mar 24 – Homily – Fr Andre

In the reflection for Tuesday of the Fourth Week of Lent (Mar 24, 2020) Father Andre relates the Scripture readings from today’s Mass to our present situation. First focusing on the reading, Father observes how Ezekiel’s vision of the Temple is a prefiguration of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Commenting on the Gospel, Father points out that the healing pool of Bethesda was out of reach for the invalid for thirty-eight years, until Jesus came along. After healing him, Jesus counseled: “Look, you are well; do not sin any more, so that nothing worse may happen to you.”

The situation with the coronavirus crisis may be a moment of opportunity in which the Lord is inducing to accept His healing, lest worse afflictions befall us. Father points out how the Pope is leading us in prayer and to resist the temptation to look for relief anywhere other than in Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.

Ave Maria!
