Reflection For The Fifth Sunday Of Lent (C) The Mercy Of God – The Beating Heart Of The Gospel

My mother died rather suddenly and expectedly on March 8. At her wake, there was a young woman in her early 30s who came to pay her respects. She actually came to the wake twice and seemed to be quite broken-hearted. I knew vaguely who she was but wondered why she seemed almost inconsolable. She told me how Mum had shown her such kindness and how she was so grateful. I sensed she had a story to tell but being overcome with grief, it did not come. When she left, I inquired of a cousin why she might be so broken up by Mum’s death. She explained that this young woman had fallen in with the wrong crowd and gotten herself into drugs, possibly prostitution, run afoul of the law and ended up losing her children. She was sentenced to do community service and Mum, being a leader in her local parish and believing everyone deserved a second chance, found her some odd jobs to do to serve her sentence.
