dc.description.abstractWe hear -- but, we do not understand. In today's Gospel, the Jews heard, but, they did not understand.|| "...whoever keeps my word will never see death." I understand that statement of Jesus within the context of eternal life --and, not simply one's physical life on earth. If I keep His Word, I will not see [eternal] death.| I read the liturgical Readings of today and realize from both the Old Testament and the New Testament that God's covenant is kept if we do our part. Both the Genesis Reading and Responsorial Psalm 105 emphasize the keeping of God's covenant with Abraham. This theme of 'covenant keeping' is re-iterated by Jesus.| Help me keep your Word during this Lenten Season --and all seasons.en_US
