This morning in EfM, someone brought this wonderful prayer which speaks to our experience of Holy Week. How do you “celebrate” Holy Week?
God of such unwavering love,
how do I “celebrate”
the passion and death of Jesus?
I often want to look the other way
and not watch,
not stay with Jesus in his suffering.
Give me the strength
to see his love with honesty and compassion
and to feel deeply
your own forgiveness and mercy for me.
Help me to understand
how to “celebrate” this week.
I want to be able to bring
my weakness and imperfections with me
as I journey with Jesus this week,
so aware of his love.
