MONTHLY LETTER FROM THE PARISH MAGAZINE
We are just about to enter the most holy week of the churches year. Holy Week and Easter is what Christianity is all about. It is at the centre of the Christian faith. We will not understand fully what it is that we are doing during this week until we partake of Easter Resurrection for ourselves and enter into God’s Kingdom of peace and joy and love.
However, a few words of guidance and introduction are always useful, but the services themselves speak louder and more clearly than I could ever write.
Palm Sunday -
Jesus celebrated the Jewish Passover with his apostles. He gives them a new commandment -
It is accomplished. We celebrate the Passion and death of Our Lord Jesus Christ. He died that we might live and by his wounds we are healed. His touch of love transforms the cross of shame into the symbol of triumph. We join his sufferings knowing that if we die with him, we will also rise with him.
Holy Saturday -
Most Blessed of all nights! This night of passover, Christ passed from death to life. It is the most important moment in the entire Christian year. We celebrate baptism -
Christ our hope is risen! Can our lives be witnesses to the power of his resurrection?
With my prayers and good wishes for a truly holy week and Easter
