5th Sunday of Lent The Hockley Ordinariate Mission 10.30 am Solemn Mass at St. Pius X. Celebrant & Preacher Fr. Bob White

The “Hour” Comes: Our Friend,Scott Hahn Reflects on the Fifth Sunday of Lent
Readings: Jeremiah 31:31-34
Psalms 51:3-412-1314-15
Hebrews 5:7-9
John 12:20-33 Our readings today are filled with anticipation. The days are coming, Jeremiah prophesies in today’s First Reading. The hour has come, Jesus says in the Gospel. The new covenant that God promised to Jeremiah is made in the “hour” of Jesus - in His death, resurrection, and ascension to the Father’s right hand. The prophets said this new covenant would return Israel’s exiled tribes from the ends of the world (seeJeremiah 31:1,3-4,7-8). Jesus too predicted His passion would gather the dispersed children of God (see John 11:52). But today He promises to draw to himself, not only Israelites, but all men and …

4th Sunday of Lent-  Laetare Sunday ( Mothering Sunday) 10.30 am. Ordinariate Mass at Hockley Celebrant & Preacher Fr. Jeff Woolnough

Our Friend Scott Hahn Reflects on the Fourth Sunday of Lent                    Readings:  2 Chronicles 36:14-1719-23 Psalm 137:1-6 Ephesians 2:4-10 John 3:14-21 (see also “Binding Isaac, Crucifying Jesus”)
The Sunday readings in Lent have been showing us the high points of salvation history - God’s covenant with creation in the time of Noah; His promises to Abraham; the law He gave to Israel at Sinai. In today’s First Reading, we hear of the destruction of the kingdom established by God’s final Old Testament covenant - the covenant with David (see 2 Samuel 7;Psalm 89:3). His chosen people abandoned the law He gave them. For their sins, the temple was destroyed, and they were exiled in Babylon. We hear their sorrow and repentance in the exil…

3rd Sunday of Lent 10.30 am Ordinariate Sung Mass at Hockley Celebrant & Preacher Fr. Bob White

Spiritual Sacrifices:  Our Friend, Scott Hahn Reflects on the  Third Sunday of Lent Please visit his site: Readings:
Exodus 20:1-17
Psalm 19:8-11
1 Corinthians 1:22-25
John 2:13-25 Jesus does not come to destroy the temple, but to fulfill it (see Matthew 5:17) - to reveal its true purpose in God’s saving plan. He is the Lord the prophets said would come - to purify the temple, banish the merchants, and make it a house of prayer for all peoples (see Zechariah 14:21Malachi 3:1-5Isaiah 56:7). The God who made the heavens and the earth, who brought Israel out of slavery, does not dwell in sanctuaries made by human hands (see Acts 7:482 Samuel 7:5). Nor does He need offerings of oxen, sheep, or doves (see Psalm 50:7-13). Notice in today’s First Reading that God did not originally command animal sacrifices - only that Israel heed His …
