Lent 5A Art and Faith

Today's image is about the Gospel reading and how Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead.  Unlike the story where Jesus comforts Martha and Mary by raising their brother to life, the picture is not a comforting picture.  Yet the description gives us new insights into the sorrow of Martha and Mary, his challenge to death, and reminder of his words, I am the resurrection and the life.

For some simple crafts linked to the story of Lazarus.
