Lent 3 – Year A
On what mountain do you find salvation/health/wholeness? Is it Mt. Zion or Mt. Gerizim? Might it be the mountain or rock that Moses struck to bring forth living, flowing water?
Even that rock became a stumbling block, keeping Moses and the people from entering the rest of a promised-land (compare with Numbers 20:1-13 as the source of G*D's rejection of Moses regarding entry to Canaan - Deuteronomy 32:48-52).
Sing, rejoice, do not harden your heart to the impossibilities before you. This is part of the Lenten testing or temptation – to not personalize every trial and complain when life is not "fair" to you and yours. How do we simply die or keep on moving ahead until we do?
