Thursday of the 4th Week in Lent

“In today’s gospel, Jesus defends himself, testifying on his own behalf to the Jews, about his claim to be the Son of God,” says Father Jerry in today’s homily, “He also calls on other witnesses who can testify to his identity: John the Baptist, the miracles Jesus has performed, and God the Father. The Jews, however, simply don’t want to hear Jesus’ message, no matter what He says to them. Jesus seeks to help us keep our hearts and minds open to Him and to His message, especially during these challenging times.”
