As we continue to reflect on the Fifth Sunday of Lent, this week we continue to advance forward on our journey of reconciliation. This week the invitation is very concrete, it is to trust that, with the accompaniment of Jesus, we can remove the stone from all those graves that do not let us live in peace. We carry many small deaths in our hearts that prevent us from continuing to grow in all our dimensions. One that hurts us the most is the resentment and estrangement of our loved ones. In this season of Lent and Quarantine that we are living, let us go out to meet those with whom we have a debt, even to those who feel they owe us something. A call, an email, a word in a gesture of reconciliation. Because Jesus takes us by the hand and invites us to get up, and because we are learning that we must return to the essential, to the deep, to the human.
