Holy Week Reflections

Entering into what may be the most sacred of Christian times, we begin the Tridium tomorrow. Holy Week.

Holy Thursday.

Good Friday.

Holy Saturday and then

Easter Sunday.

Each day has its own special emphasis in the historical journey of Jesus into Jerusalem on the days before he was crucified.

Each day calls us to reflect on what it means today to commune with each other, to share our hearts and minds, our souls and meals with each other. To serve and be served.

To face contempt with dignity and persecution with compassion.

To face crucifixion with forgiveness.

To grieve the absence and loss of your sacred loved one.

To be shocked with the stunning news of resurrection on Easter morning.

He is Risen.

He is Risen Indeed. Alleluia.
