The warnings are plentiful and blunt on the third Sunday in Lent. Lent is a season of repentance.

 Cut it out or get cut down! The warnings are accompanied by God's invitation to attentiveness:

 "Incline your ear, and come to me; listen, so that you may live." The landowner's

 ultimatum is forestalled by the gardener's readiness to till the ground one more year.

That is good news for all of us. Thanks be to God!

Sierra Pacific Benevolence Sunday

 

The psalm sets the tone this day: "Happy are they whose transgressions are forgiven,

 and whose sin is put away!" Happy are those who have "become the righteousness of God"

 in the merits of Christ Jesus. Happy are those for whom the forgiveness of God has "rolled away . . .

 the disgrace" of former times. Happy is the father at the return of his prodigal son.

 Happy are we that our sins are forgiven for Jesus' sake. Rejoice!
