For Lent 6 – Think ahead for next week:   He Makes Us into Priests

Jesus was correct when he proclaimed himself to be the Way, the Truth, and the Life—no one could come to the Father except through him. Unlike the old veil that blocked the way to God and sealed the entrance to God’s presence, Jesus opens the way, inviting sinners to enter God’s presence. “Come to me,” he says, “all you who are weary and burdened” (Mt 11:28). And he promises, “Whoever comes to me I will never drive away” (Jn 6:37). All who come to the Father by faith in Christ—trusting that the sins they committed in thought, word, and deed, and the sins they could not get rid of by themselves are paid for in full—find free access to God.
