We have reached the halfway point in Lent and have begun our final preparation for Easter. This Sunday's Gospel from John reflects this focus. We hear about the event that precipitated active plotting of Jesus' arrest and crucifixion. This Sunday we will recall the story and reflect on the ways it applies to our current life as Jesus' disciples. We will acknowledge that we too want to limit God's activity in and influence upon our lives. We will pray for Grace and give thanks that once we were blind but now we too see.
