The Third Scrutiny: Fifth Sunday of Lent


Third Scrutiny – 5th Sunday of Lent

Why are there 3 Scrutinies? Isn’t one enough? They’re like any other exercise; it’s by doing them repeatedly that we get the hang of it. The repetition strengthens us in our faith. Each time we participate, we are able to see more clearly where we’ve been close to God and where there is work to be done. In the final Gospel of the Scrutinies, we have the story of the raising of Lazarus. Martha professes her faith in Jesus before the miracle happens. In a similar way, the Elect have trusted Jesus and are prepared to make their own profession of faith. 

Join us in prayer and reflection with the readings for the Third Scrutiny. Are you waiting for evidence of Christ’s presence in your life? How will you profess your faith as Easter approaches?
