Tuesday 21 March
Tuesday of the 4th week of Lent
First reading – Ezekiel 47:1-9,12
“This water flows east down to the Arabah and to the sea; and flowing into the sea it makes its waters wholesome”. Here we read the effect of the grace of God in our life. The grace flows from the temple. It flows to all directions. It grows in abundance and becomes a river impossible to cross. Then we see the effect of the water all along the way it goes. It brings richness, fruits, lavishness, and even medicinal. Now we must think this in our life and the effect of grace of God in our life. The grace comes from the tabernacle. Our relationship to tabernacle makes this effect in our life. The grace begins to flow in all directions. It grows into abundance. Nothing can cross this river of grace. No sadness, no crisis, no problems will be greater than this grace. Then, this grace will produce fruits of grace in our life. It will bring the fruits of love, generosity, and kindness in our life. By this our life of grace becomes medicinal for others. All this begins with our relationship to the tabernacle. Let’s reflect: Lent is the time to re-establish or deepen our relationship with the tabernacle, the source of grace.
