Fifth Sunday Lent (Cycle B)


Homily by Fr. John P. Schlegel, SJ, pastor of the Church of the Gesu (March 22, 2015)


John 12:20-33    “Some Greeks who had come to worship at the Passover Feast came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and asked him, ‘Sir, we would like to see Jesus.’”

    Man, this is good stuff. Nicely tying in the readings’ progressions through the season, while anchoring the reality of realizing what it means to “see Jesus” as these Greeks said they wanted to do. Meaningful,..and helpful.


  2. Thanks, Roy, I’ll pass this comment along to John. Yeah, he has been on a roll for a good while! I’m delighted to post these homilies! –roc,sj
    PS: Thanks for all your comments, too, Roy!

    Lots to think about here. A bringing together of events that culminate in this time of last week in Lent. Thank you for this Roc. Theresa
