From Our Pastor

 

The Third, Fourth and Fifth Sundays in Lent are special Sundays in the Church’s year, especially for those who will become full members of the Catholic Church during the Easter Vigil, as we celebrate a special rite called the Scrutinies at the 11:00  AM Masses. The purpose of each of the Scrutinies is “to uncover, then heal all that is weak, defective, or sinful in the hearts of the elect” and “to bring out, then strengthen all that is upright, strong, and good” (RCIA, 141). The true pastoral sense of this two-fold act of uncovering and strengthening is emphasized in the next sentence, “For the Scrutinies are celebrated in order to deliver the elect from the power of sin and Satan, to protect them against temptation, and to give them strength in Christ.” At it’s core, the Scrutinies are not so much about the sinfulness of the elect, but above all is about the overwhelming grace of God in Christ. As we walk with the elect on their journey to the Easter Sacraments, may we also be healed and strengthened by God’s Spirit.
