Lenten Preaching Series - "Cross Training"
Fifth Sunday of Lent: "Be Unbound and Set Free!"
Crosses come in many varieties: the temptations we face, the struggles that seem like steep mountain terrain, thirsts for meaningful relationships, physical and spiritual infirmities, and even dealing with death. Our sins and hurts "bind us" in the darkness and Jesus calls us, like Lazarus, forth from our tombs to new life. Yet, in coming forth we also need help. "Untie him, and set him free," Jesus tells the witnesses, and so he tells us to be unbound and to unbind others. We do this through our prayerful support and through the Church's healing ministry in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
It is Free
