Pictures for the 3rd Sunday in Lent, Year C (28 February 2016)

This is a small selection of free-use illustrations, photographs or images based on the readings and prayers/propers in the Roman Catholic lectionary for the third  Sunday of Lent, Year C.  It is part of the Lectionary Art Series.

See Hymn Suggestions for this Sunday for more information about the readings and seasonal notes about this day, and links to other weeks.

Note:   this is just a small selection of the available free-use images representing the story of Moses and the burning bush, which is the central story of the day's 1st reading.    The day's Gospel reading is a good deal less image-friendly.
