Readings for the Week
March 22 - 29, 2020


Reading for Sunday, March 22:

1 Sm 16:1b, 6-7:
  God directs Samuel to anoint David king. God looks into the heart of each person.

Eph 5:8-14:  We are to walk in the light which shows goodness, justice, and truth.  Christ gives this light whereby we live.

Jn 9:1-41:  Jesus is the light. He cures a man born blind by bringing him to see.  Jesus identifies Himself
as the Son of Man.

Today’s Message:  Samuel does not see as God sees in the choice of David, who is anointed with oil.
As Jesus cures the blind man, so too are we brought from darkness into light through the grace of baptism.
