Day 11, April 14th
Alleluia

Reflection:
Your Hebrew is very good! Yes, that word Alleluia is Hebrew, and a word Jesus would have prayed himself. It is found in several of the psalms, the collection of prayers and songs all addressed to God arising from almost every human experience you can think of. It appears about 30 times throughout the Bible and always in the imperative form – its an order, a command. Praise! Praise God, Praise the Holy One whose name shall not be pronounced – Hallelu is the command to praise someone, and Yah is the One to be praised, transliterated as the Lord, as β€˜Yah’ is too sacred a name to translate. So essentially every time we prepare to hear the Gospel proclaimed we sing β€˜Everyone, praise Him, the Lord!’ It’s a call to action, in our hearts, in our minds, engaging our voice and our body as we stand. You have heard the expression – We are an Easter people, and Alleluia is our song! On hearing that God loved the world so completely that he gave his only son, so that anyone who believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life – how could we not shout out to each other with joy and gratitude to praise such a loving God – Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia

10th Day, April 13th
The Son of Man must be lifted up

 
Reflection:
It’s dark, Nicodemus is there shrouded in fear, and now in inner turmoil. The teacher, who he knows to be sent by God, speaks in a way that no teacher in Israel ever has. His heart burns within him as Jesus presents the scriptures to him in a way never heard before – so full of immediacy, so right here, so right now! Then the prophecy – just as the serpent was raised in the desert by Moses to restore life to a hopeless people, so will the Son of Man give life to everyone who believe in him. Filled with curiosity and longing Nicodemus follows Jesus, but secretly. Yet, he is there when Jesus is lifted up, he sees and he believes. He throws off the shroud of fear and with his friend Joseph of Arimathea claims Jesus from the cross and assists with what happens next. Nicodemus, you saw and you believed. Pray for us that we rely not on our eyes, our ears or our ability to touch for proof that Jesus is God and is risen from the dead, but with our heart opened and flooded by the Holy Spirit.
Lord Jesus, with Nicodemus we believe you, we believe in you!
