Abraham is Father and Patriarch to Jews, Christians & Muslims. God told our Father Abraham that he and his descendants must keep his covenant throughout the ages. I can’t speak for other ages, but our age is not doing so well. How can we, the “People of the Book”, betray our roots and our God so often in the way we discriminate and express hate and carry out violence toward those who are not of our religion? For those Christians, we best make our attitude toward Jews and Muslims a serious examination of our consciences as we enter into Holy Week. The prayers and readings of Good Friday and the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday provide us with much material for our reflection.

Verse of the Day:
Thus says the Lord GOD:
I will take the children of Israel from among the nations
to which they have come,
and gather them from all sides to bring them back to their land.
I will make them one nation upon the land,
in the mountains of Israel,
and there shall be one prince for them all.
Never again shall they be two nations,
and never again shall they be divided into two kingdoms.
