March 27, A.D. 2005

Exodus 14:15--15:1

Romans 6:3-11

Matthew 28:1-10

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"The disciple whom Jesus loved...saw and believed, for they did not yet understand the Scripture that He had to rise from the dead." (see Luke 24:29,34,35)

Preceding His Passion, Jesus carefully reveals to His beloved disciples that He will suffer a sacrificial offering to restore us in covenant with God. This Word graces the minds and hearts of His beloved disciples to be able to behold all with the eyes of faith.

Only one who faithfully remains united in Love may 'see' and behold with these eyes of grace, His true victory. His horrific, passionate, sacrificial offering of pure Love surpasses human nature and understanding. Our Lady is so graced. She 'sees' and suffers Him through all, dying every step of the way to Life.

Luke tells us "the disciple whom Jesus loved", John, who remained with Him beyond his own temptation to fear, deny, and abandon Jesus, was also open to receive these graces to "see and believe' before they were able to return to the Word of scripture and understand that Jesus had to rise from the dead.

One who remains in The One, sees with 'His eyes' what Love is about. When we allow our faith to be shaken, we become scattered from Him in Whom all is restored. Jesus understands our weak, human nature and so promises as our Go-d Shepherd to gather what is scattered, restoring us in His gift of sacrificial offering, to covenantal One Love.

Lord, may we 'see and believe' accepting Your gift of faith that leaves what is dead in sin to rise to new life through, with and in You to the glory of God the Father. Our beLoved Redeemer lives! Alleluia!
