March 17th and 18th, 2018
✙ Fifth Sunday of Lent Time

Sunday Readings for March 18th , 2018

         A grain of wheat has to die in order to bear fruit. We too have to die ourselves in order to live more fully as human beings and children of God. This dying to self is a gradual thing and happens in very ordinary ways.
       The Lord, who died for us, gives us courage and strength.

A Grain of Wheat Must Die

Each of us is like a grain of wheat planted by God.
Just as a grain of wheat must so as to produce a harvest,
so must we die to self in order to bear the fruits of love.
This dying to self is a gradual process
and happens in little ways.
Every act of humility involves dying to pride.
Every act of courage involves dying to cowardice.
Every act of kindness involves dying to cruelty.
Every act of love involves dying to selfishness.
Thus the false self dies, and the true self,
made in God's image, is born and nurtured.
It is by giving that we receive;
It is by forgiving that we are forgiven;
It is by dying that we are born to eternal life.
