Holy Week begins

Holy Week

We have begun the most holy of weeks.  This is a time to reflect on the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus.  

Are we willing to give Jesus our best this week? Can you step away from the technology – TV, cell phones, internet, video games – and give the Lord your best?  Maybe this week you give the Lord the first hour of the day to set the tone for the day.

If you have never attended the liturgies on Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday, I really encourage you to do so.  These three days make up one single liturgy.  Thursday we celebrate the Last Supper and washing of the feet of the disciples.  Friday we focus on the passion and death of Jesus.  Saturday we celebrate the resurrection, and we welcome into the Church new members through Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.

Don’t allow this week to just be another week.  Make it special.  Allow the Lord to work in your heart.  You will never regret giving the Lord your most valuable asset – your time.
