"Could you not watch one hour with me?"
In today's reading of the Passion we hear Jesus ask this question of his friends. During this Holy Week, he asks us the same question.
Are we planning to take some time on Holy Thursday evening to commemorate and celebrate the day in which we received the great gift of Eucharist and the commandment to love and serve one another?
Will we set aside a little time on Good Friday afternoon to walk the Way of the Cross with Jesus and accompany him in the hour of his crucifixion and death?
Can we forego a little sleep on Saturday night to celebrate the vigil of Jesus' resurrection and recall the wonderful history of our salvation?
And on Easter Sunday will we bring our whole family to church to sing, "Alleluia, Jesus is risen"?
Rooted in the Cross, Word, and Eucharist ... compassionately responding through prayer, presence, and hospitality.
