On the Margins from Mater Dei Radio, Portland, OR
Fifth Sunday of Lent, April 2, 2017
This is the third gospel celebrating the scrutinies for the Elect, those who will be baptized at the Easter Vigil. We are confronted with many things that have died within us. Baptism will be a second birth, a new hope for people’s lives. Death gives way to new life, a hope for us all.
