The Fifth Sunday In Lent

This week [and, oh, what readings we have] Isaiah speaks for God when he reveals that "a new thing" is about to be done; Paul takes a trip to the experiential town dump, and Jesus enjoys a little nard, much to the vexation of Judas. All this plus the story behind Mary and Jesus' non-verbal exchange.

The lections may be found here.

[To the right is a modern sample of nard, which is produced from the spikenard plant, a member of the Valerian family.]
