Holy Week

Rise up O Jerusalem!  Your King is coming!

Yesterday we celebrated Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday.  The Kingdom of God is at hand!

This coming week, we will also experience the circle of life that is Paschal Mystery… the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus.

It is a tumultuous cycle of events… going from the highest highs to the lowest lows and back to even higher highs.  This very sacred time of year deserves our prayerful attention and entry into the mystery that is before us.

Praying through Triduum on YouTube

And so we offer you a chance to do your own prayer retreat at home this week… out-of-the-ordinary!

Starting on Holy Wednesday, we will put up a step-by-step retreat outline for you to pray your way through Triduum and on through Easter.

Each day there will be a reflection and activities along with a special YouTube video for your prayer time.  You will need about 15 to 30 minutes so plan to carve out some quiet time in your day when you can be free of distractions.  Consider doing this first thing in the morning to set the tone for your day.

Let this be a time for change.

Lent is all about turning our lives and our hearts more toward God.  If we give time to prayer, God will reward us.  God always hears our prayers.  Let this be a time of transformation.

Come back on Wednesday for…  Holy Wednesday:  Remind Me Who I Am.
