Weekly Message:

March 18, 2018
          This Lent the first readings have by and large presented covenants. Again, the term covenant means a binding agreement between people, or in the case of Sacred Scripture, between God and His people. On the First Sunday of Lent we heard about the Covenant God made with the people at the time of Noah, the Covenant of the Rainbow. We were reminded that God will never give up on his people, or on any of us as individuals. The Second Sunday, we heard about the Covenant of Faith made between God and Abraham. We were encouraged to have the faith of Abraham and to trust in God when we are challenged. We might not know how, but somehow God will set things straight. The Third Sunday of Lent presented the Covenant of the Law God made with Moses, the covenant of the Ten Commandments. This Sunday we hear Jeremiah’s prophecy of the Covenant of the Heart. This will all lead to the Paschal Mystery and the Blood of the New and Eternal Covenant, the covenant we will renew on our altar in a few minutes.
          Our focus today is on Jeremiah’s prophecy. “A day will come,” says the Lord through Jeremiah, “when I will write my law upon their hearts. No longer will they have need to teach their friends and relatives how to know the LORD. All, from least to greatest, shall know me, says the LORD.” That day has come. When we are united to God, then we can look within ourselves, determine what our conscience is telling us, and know how to serve our God. We don’t need particular laws any more. We have the Lord.
          All of us are concerned with teaching our faith to our children. Religious education is not enough. It is important, yes, but it barely touches the surface of what it means to follow the Lord. Yes, it is important that our children learn their lessons. But it is infinitely more important that we provide our children with experience after experience of our living our love for God. It is not just their minds or our minds that God wants. What God wants is their hearts. What God wants is our hearts.
- Excerpted from Rev. Msgr. Joseph A. Pellegrino, Diocese of St. Petersburg, FL
