Tuesday in the Sixth Week of Lent

An older brother asked his much younger brother what he would like to receive from him for his birthday.  The younger brother replied wisely and lovingly, “What you give I like best.”

What does our elder brother, Jesus, most want to give us?  First, the forgiveness of our sins by suffering and dying for us.  Second, his body and blood in the Eucharist to unite us to himself.  Third, to share eternal life with him in heaven
