Lent calendar for families for 30 March

 A father and son in Ethiopia.

 A father and son in Ethiopia.

My Father goes on working, and so do I… The Son cannot do anything on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing, for what he does, the Son will do also.” 

John 5:19

In Jesus’ day, it was usual for sons to take up their fathers’ work. They would learn this trade – be it carpentry, fishing, or another job – by watching and imitating their father. Jesus, the Son, is the same. He sees his heavenly Father’s actions and joins his work.

How can we too join God’s work of healing and justice in our world?
