Lenten Reflections from "Catholicism" –week 5

Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus Carry the Cross by David O'Connell

The Gospel reading this fifth Sunday of Lent contains the paradoxical passage, "Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life." The covenant of which Jeremiah prophesied in the first reading is embodied in the passion, death, and Resurrection of Christ.

On today's post, watch compiled clips from CATHOLICISM that key off of this Sunday's scriptural passages, listen to Father Barron's corresponding sermon, and join us in our forum to discuss the reflection questions.
