This weekend marks Palm Sunday. We begin the holiest week of the Church year with the Commemoration of the Lord Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem. We will hear and perhaps participate in the Passion from the Gospel of Matthew. Day by day we will have the opportunity to walk along with Jesus, his Apostles, his Mother, his friends, bystanders and his enemies through the Paschal Mystery of the Last Supper, the Way of the Cross, the Crucifixion, the Death, the Burial and the Resurrection.
One way to pray the Gospel stories this Holy Week is to choose a character and experience the event through their eyes, their ears, their emotions. Enter the scene as fully as you can so the Gospel story no longer remains a written word but becomes a living word that can transform your heart, your mind, your life.
May this week be a holy one for you!
Rooted in the Cross, Word, and Eucharist ... compassionately responding through prayer, presence, and hospitality.
