FAITH BOOK

1ST SUNDAY OF LENT FEBRUARY 18, 2018

Genesis 9: 8-15; Psalm 25; I Peter 3: 18-22; Mark 1: 12-15

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Genesis reading:

 

"When I bring the clouds over the earth,

and the bow appears in the clouds,

I will recall the covenant I have made between me

and you an all living beings...."

 

Reflection:

 

The rainbow is not to serve as a reminder to us of God’s covenant with us. Instead, it is a sign to God, a "reminder," that no matter how far adrift we go; no matter that we might forget God, the author of Genesis says, God will never forget us.

 

So we ask ourselves:

 

  • Do we believe that nothing can separate us from the love God has for us?

  • What effect does that have on how we see ourselves and those around us?
