Holy Week 2020

Good morning everyone.   I hope all is well

I composed this account of the services for Holy Week sometime ago.  Unfortunately,  this year it can only remind us of what we should be doing.

I hope it will help set the spiritual tone for each day.  No doubt, for the Sacred Triduum,  there will be many services streamed, both from our own diocese and elsewhere, perhaps in some sort of abbreviated form.   I tend to watch St Augustine’s, Coatbridge, and EWTN, who have 3 Masses every day—-6 a.m., 12 noon and 6 pm. 

A reminder that I recite the Rosary every day at 12 noon  and intend making the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday at 3 p.m.  Anyone who wishes to join me will be most welcome  –in that way we can pray together even from our own homes.

There are still palms outside  the door–for anyone who wishes to collect one .

 

We will spend the week meditating on the mystery  of pain and suffering undergone by Our Saviour for the salvation of  mankind, and ending in the glory of Resurrection–a very appropriate  subject at this time of pain and anxiety.  St Pope John Paul ii wrote a wonderful encyclical on the meaning of suffering and how, united with our Lord’s Passion and Death, it can be salvific and point to the Resurrection.   At the end of his life, he was to give us a  positive but stark and poignant example in his own suffering and death.

We now have a twitter account, thanks to a parishioner of the Holy Family.  It is a Holy Family site, but all our communications are identical  at the present time.

Be of good heart.

May the Good Lord  bless us and keep us all in His love
