Supporting the Elect and Celebrating the Scrutinies

On the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Sundays of Lent we celebrate the scrutinies, special prayers
of for the Elect – those who are preparing for Baptism, Confirmation, and
Eucharist at the Easter Vigil. The scrutinies are meant to heal what is weak and
uphold what is strong in the Elect during these final days of preparation. For the
next three Sundays we will hear stories of the Samarian woman, the man born
blind, and the raising of Lazarus. Each of these Gospels offers a powerful image
of conversion, faith, and healing, and they also highlight three key human
needs – water, light, and life. These Gospels challenge us to consider superficial
ways we might seek to fulfill our needs and urge us to turn to Christ who is living
water, the light of the world, and our hope in the Resurrection. The scrutinies
will be held at a different mass each week so that a variety of parishioners can
provide support through their prayer. In the coming days we invite you to walk in
solidarity with the Elect by reflecting on these Gospels and considering your own
relationship with Christ as you prepare to renew your Baptismal promises this
First Scrutiny – Sunday, March 8th - 8 am Mass
Gospel: John 4:5-42, the Samaritan Woman
Second Scrutiny – Sunday, March 15th -10:30 am Mass
Gospel: John 9:1-41, the man born blind
Third Scrutiny – Sunday, March 22nd – 7:30 pm Mass
