Our oasis in the desert of life
On the fourth Sunday in Lent we arrive at a bit of an oasis in the midst of Lent, which is why roses today adorn our altar. And just as the Israelites in the wilderness received a daily miraculous reminder that God was still with them, in the manna that came down from heaven, and just as the 5000 in a deserted place received from Jesus miraculous bread that somehow was multiplied from 5 loaves, so also today in the Blessed Sacrament he feeds us at an oasis in the midst of earthy life itself. And this miracle is greater than the manna, greater than the bread which fed five thousand, for this is bread which by his word becomes his own Body for us to eat, and with it he guarantees that in our trek through this world we by this faith shall arrive at our Promised Land. For he not only gives us here our daily bread, but this Sacrament is actually Christ himself, the Bread of Life. Sermon for Laetare Sunday, and the video is here.
