Homily: Fifth Sunday of Lent (B)
John 12:20-33

Accepting the Inevitable with Faith and Hope

In life, we all have to contend with many challenges and difficulties as well. Suffering is an unavoidable part of life. As disciples of Jesus, life will not be easy either. Of course, we are not seeking out suffering for its own sake. Some would say, suffering finds us even when we try our best to avoid it. The truth is, if we chose to follow Jesus we must expect — even welcome — the struggles and strains of living a life following in His footsteps. “Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be.” (John 12:26) We cannot avoid nor escape our share in the sufferings of Christ in order to share in His glory. The cross is part and parcel of our story of our salvation. Jesus took on the weight of the sins of all humanity — past, present and future — making for the heaviest cross of all. Yet He bore it with patience and love because He knew the ultimate good His sacrifice would bring.
