This Weekend we enter the Holiest week of the Church’s Year. It begins with Palm Sunday, and the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. The Church traditionally marks this occasion with Palm branches, a procession and a reading of the Passion of Jesus Christ that tells the story of Jesus’ Last Supper, his betrayal in the garden, his trial and his crucifixion. This year, we gather again after our COVID isolation to mark Jesus’ Passion with our own inward journey to self-discovery.
Take time to meditate on Jesus' Journey to Jerusalem and the Cross
Master of all, great and small We thank you for your people Who join you on the road of life. We praise you for the courage Of those who are prepared to shine like beacons In dark and troubled lands. Seize our hearts we beg And set fire to them That we too may cast your light As we join you along the path you chose to walk As you enter Jerusalem to embrace your suffering and death. Give us the confidence to believe that after the darkness Comes the joy and light of new life. Amen
