What meaning is there in this time piled high with difficulty?
To the extent that we listen to the earth we might hear a sigh turning into a deep breath. Forced into staying in our homes we have given creation a moment’s reprieve from the ways we have been burning up resources, destroying rain forests, and clogging the air with our exhaust.
To the extent that we open our eyes to the goodness God has put in each soul, we will notice that those who are attuned to the Lord’s compassion are doing amazing things to care for each other.
To the extent that we put on the mind of the church we will allow the tradition to come alive for us. Attending to the readings our predecessors have appointed for Holy Week may help us in this task.
I am posting today a series of reflections on key verses among the readings for the climax of Holy Week: the Three Days of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Saturday Easter Vigil.
I invite you to join my wife, Connie, and me, in following Christ to the cross and to new life, and make the most of this holy time we are given.
