Readings and Hymns March 29 Mass

The theme of today’s liturgy is new life, eternal life. In the story of the raising of Lazarus from John’s gospel (John 11) we receive a prediction of the resurrection of Jesus and of ourselves.

All the readings and hymns for today emphasize the new life we have in Christ. In the first reading from Ezekiel 37:12-14, God promises, “I will put my Spirit in you that you may live,” and so we pray that the Spirit breathe this new life on us, so that we in turn may breathe God’s life into each other.

Breathe on me, O Breath of God:
