Laetare Sunday 2023
As we pass the middle of Lent, we are given this Sunday a spirit of joy. The Holy Catholic Church is the new Jerusalem, and we, as the Church Militant, are called to fight for our salvation with the use of prayer and the sacraments. There are no exceptions when it comes to accepting God’s Word and the articles of Faith. In the miracle of this Gospel account, we see the figure of the Eucharist and Baptism in the multiplication of the loaves and fishes.
