Rembrandt The Raising of Lazarus 1630 1633When Jesus goes to the grave of Lazarus we see a very human, relatable Jesus. He weeps, he is mourning the loss of his friend. The key is what and how he does next – he prays. But not simply asking God for something, which is a trap we often fall into. He instead begins with “Father, I thank you for hearing me.  I know that you always hear me.” I think this message is poignant given our current circumstances. In all things, give thanks. If Jesus at a time of tremendous pain and loss can begin his prayer with gratitude and thanksgiving, we should take note. I found great comfort in knowing that even in these uncertain times, we can and must find things to give thanks to God.  Maybe for some it will just be thank you for this moment and that is fine!! At different points, everyone is struggling, the key is to remember that we can find comfort in knowing we do not walk alone and if we look carefully we will see God is working in and around us and for that we should give thanks and this is incredibly comforting. (Written by Jen O'Neill)

Prayer to St. Lazarus

Dear Saint Lazarus, friend of Christ Incarnate and patron of the poor and the sick; I request your intercession, with the aid of the Holy Spirit; May the Lord, Who prefigured His resurrection through your own miraculous rising, always guide me in my earthly pilgrimage and protect me in sickness and in health.
