Holy Week Exhortation

 

“We are being called into the FAITH of Holy Week. For in Jesus Christ, we come to recognise, that God enters into the deepest struggle and pain and isolation of humanity in these days.”

As we enter into the most sacred time in the liturgical year, we face an unprecedented time in our lives. This year, we do not have what we have come to rely on to aid us in our observance of Holy Week but this does not change the significance of the time we now enter into. This year, what meaning does Holy Week take on for you?

Watch this video with a group of friends online and share with one another what struck you and what is one grace that you’d like to ask for as you enter Holy Week. Respond together in prayer, by praying for one another! Be bold to reach out to someone today!

Let us make the most of this season at home and truly fix our gaze on Jesus! #HOmeLYWeek
