HOLY WEEK AND EASTER SERIVCES

During Holy Week, Christians share in the remembrance of Jesus’ final days, from his arrival in Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and last meal with his disciples through betrayal, arrest, and the ordeal of his passion and crucifixion. Together, we prayerfully contemplate the suffering he endured as we face the brutal injustice of his imperial execution with the blessing of the religious establishment. In his memory, we endure this grim journey sustained by trust in God’s gracious love, knowing that this sorrowful path leads—by indescribable grace—to the celebration of divine mercy and life eternal.

 

This year, as the specter of death haunts our world and fear of plague sends shockwaves of disruption through all of our lives, I pray that we may discover in the cross that the love of God is with us in the midst of pain and grief. May the Holy Spirit comfort us as we confront the grim spectacle of evil and sin, and guide us through the valley of death toward the perfect love that beckons us ever onward.
