Knowing God by Heart

Readings for March 25, 2012, 5th Sunday of Lent

Jeremiah 31:31-34; Hebrews 5:7-9; John 12:20-33

Reflection Questions:

  • What’s the difference between knowing God in your head and knowing God in your heart, as the first reading describes? In which way do you feel you know God better?
  • What does it mean that Jesus admits, “I am troubled now”? How does it feel to know that even Jesus struggled to follow God’s call and shared in the same feelings of anxiety that we face?
  • When in your life have you experienced fruit growing from a fallen grain of wheat? In other words, when has the death of something resulted in new life for you?
