Christ Healing the Man Born Blind
Russian (?) Wall Painting, location & date unknown

FROM THE RECTOR

The Fourth Sunday in Lent is variously known as Laetare ("Rejoice") Sunday, Rose Sunday, Mid-Lent Sunday, and Mothering Sunday. The mood of the liturgy lightens a bit as we pause before the final weeks of Lent leading up to Holy Week. The Gospel narrative of the Healing of the Man Born Blind emphasizes that Christ is the source of all true enlightenment and understanding. It is a great joy and privilege to be able to join in the Church's worship; let's make every effort to take advantage of the opportunity to do so. -- Fr. John D. Alexander

Guercino, Christ and the Samaritan Woman at the Well, 1640-1641

FROM THE RECTOR

In the traditional Rite of the Western Church, during the Season of Lent, the Gospel readings were taken from the Gospel according to St. John and involved themes of repentance, enlightenment, conversion, and new life. Year A of the Revised Common Lectionary follows this ancient pattern, giving us on the Third Sunday of Lent St. John's account of Our Lord's meeting with the Samaritan woman at the well. After her conversation with Jesus, she tells the townsfolk of her city: "Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did." The encounter with Jesus is life-changing. Come, see ... -- Fr. John D. Alexander

Patriarch Abraham
Wall or ceiling panel, provenance unknown

FROM THE RECTOR

This Sunday's readings emphasize the theme of faith and belief. At the Lord's Word, Abram goes out from his own country, trusting in God's promise that he will be the ancestor of a great nation in whom all the nations of the earth will be blessed. Paul comments, "Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness." And Jesus himself declares: "God gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." The life of the Church is a journey of faith that we undertake together, in love for God and one another, and with hope in God's promise of eternal life for those who believe. Come walk with us on the journey.  --  Fr. John D. Alexander
