(Fifth Sunday of Lent, B)
Jesus said, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life.” Jn_12:20-33
Death to sin. New life in Christ (baptism). New life, better than the old. And all of that brings us HOPE. So don’t cling on to the material life beloved, which will die. Strive instead for the eternal life with God and “hate” the things of the world!
