HE RAISES THE DEAD AND GIVES THEM LIFE
Jesus is much more than a man, even a very extraordinary one. He is truly God  
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
One of the greatest problems facing the world today is a movement either to deny or ignore the divinity of Christ. There are some that would want to see Jesus as a great philosopher, or social reformer. To be sure, Jesus has a human nature, which creates appeal for us. He graced the wedding banquet, blessed little children, ate and drank with sinners. But Jesus is much more than a man, even a very extraordinary one. He is truly God, and the religious leaders in today's Gospel saw clearly that Jesus spoke of God as His own Father, thereby making Himself God's equal.
 
Jesus forcefully manifested His claim of divinity by attributing to Himself two works in particular which are distinctively God's works. Firstly, Jesus gives life. He raises the dead to life. Secondly, He judges all people, and thereby grants them eternal life, or gives them a choice to turn away from Him.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder:  As I was reflecting on the readings I couldn't help but think about the Stations of the Cross. In St. Paul's Letter to Corinth we read "We walk by faith, not by sight." Truly that is what Jesus showed us. And as we reflect on the stations it shows us God and His unconditional love for us. The Lenten season is a good time to strength your relationship with God.
