Brothers and Sisters,
Throughout this season of Lent, we have been making our “Journey for Home”. At our Lenten liturgies we have been singing:
“In our weakness we’re made strong, In our suffering we’re made stronger in the dark we turn to the light. In our faith you heal our blindness. Though our hearts be burdened with sin through your love you brought us salvation. Through the gifts and love we share we will know your presence among us. We live and journey, journey for home.”
Our Lenten “Journey for Home” soon culminates in the three-day celebration known as the Sacred Triduum. The priests and Pastoral Staff join with me to invite you to attend the beautiful liturgies of these solemn days of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and the Easter Vigil that leads us to the great Feast of Easter.
These Holy Week celebrations are at the heart of the Church’s prayer. After the celebration of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, we move through the poignant and prayerful liturgies of Thursday and Friday ending with the joyful announcement at the tomb, “He is Risen. He is not here.” Come join us in the prayers and liturgies of Holy Week 2014. ~ Fr. Jim
