Fifth Sunday in Lent – C2

Fifth Sunday in Lent – C2

Years C
Psalm 126

Remembering past restorations gives hope for a restoration in the present day. This is very upbeat and a helpful reminder in the midst of difficulties. [Listen to the Song of the Reaper]

This is one of those passages that can bear repeating unto vanity. Inasmuch as life is what life is, this are among the most contemporary of expressions.

As a way of testing this, spend a week with this Psalm. Speak it and sing it over and over. At the beginning of the week note your level of enthusiasm for the work before you. At the end of the week note your enthusiasm. I wouldn't be surprised if this perspective of a different ending spot than starting spot makes a change in the way in which you are able to be persistent in doing good.

= = = = = = =


in retrospect
we find perspective
to willingly perspire

not bound by the past
but taught by it
we don't repeat

eventually our revival
is not a recycling
but a new joy
