Was there a good point made in the sermon you heard for your Mass of Sunday obligation? Let us know what it was.
For my part, for Quinquagesima Sunday, I connected the image in 1 Corinthians 13 of seeing “darkly” and, in the Gospel, the Apostles inability to see what the Lord was talking about in predicting his Passion, and the giving of sight to the blind man at Jericho. At the same time, I connected the journey Paul described of moving from being a child and doing childish things to being a man and doing mature things, with the ascent Jesus and the disciples will make “up to Jerusalem”, making a connection also with John’s vision of the “new Jerusalem coming down” in Revelations, that recapitulates the ascent of Moses and the elders to the top of Mt Sinai when they have the sight of God in heaven and the shining floor like lapis lazuli. Then I placed that in the context of the sequence of pre-Lent Sundays, which in ancient times prepared prospective catechumens to move from a less clear notion of what they were getting into to a clearer notion, through the texts of Sunday Masses, till they, on this Sunday, ascended the Vatican Hill to old St. Peter’s…. and the same readings we had today. I reminded everyone that Fathers of the Church would refer to Lent as a “sacramentum” (Gk. mysterion). Outward signs help us out of blindness to “see” interior realities. This is how we prepare for Lent, which is also an ascent to Jerusalem, sacramentally made present to us and us to it in the liturgical action, in anticipation of our ascent to the new Jerusalem when all things are resolved.
