Title:Holy Week Wednesday, 2019

Walk with Jesus in his suffering and share in his resurrection during Holy Week. 

The Biblical verses below will lead you along Jesus’ path of Monday of Holy Week.   There are links to several commentaries, including  a link from "Progression of Faith" that includes a summary based on The Last Week (Borg/Crossan).  

"Struggle" – From the Brothers of St. John the Evangelist
“Make no mistake about it. The events of Holy Week and Easter are not merely annual reenactments of the tragic events of the life of an important historical personage. This is spiritual mystery on its deepest and most cosmic scale. These are mysteries we, too, struggle with daily all our lives and which remain beyond our comprehension.”
– Br. Eldridge Pendleton

Tenebrae

Tenebrae 7pm, April 17. This service introduces the events of Holy Week and provides an opportunity to meditate on those events through the words of the Psalms. The most conspicuous feature of the service is the gradual distinguishing of candles until only a single candle, considered a symbol of our Lord, remains.
