5th Week of Lent - Be Opened ...  to Believe

Opening Prayer - Prayerfully reflect on your life at present "Is it difficult for you to believe and do you ever have doubts"?
                         This week we hear the story of a certain man who was ill, Lazarus of Bethany, whose sisters are Martha and Mary
                         and that all lived in Bethany. Let us listen to the Gospel of John.

                         A Reading from the Holy Gospel of John                                                           John (11:1-7,17-27, 34-45 )

Now let us take some time to reflect on how the gospel plays out in your life.

If a word or phrase evoked a response in you say it out loud to the group. You don't have to say why it evoked the response.
