Let us remember with devotion this entry which began His saving work . . . and let us follow Him with a lively faith.
I was struck by the quote…”We reveal to ourselves and others what is important to us by the way we prepare/celebrate.” I added the word prepare here because I believe this also is a way we reveal to ourselves and others…
And so here we are in the days of Holy Week. I realize that it could be another week where all of a sudden it is Good Friday and Easter. I don’t want the week to slip by me without proper reflection and preparation on my part. And I don’t want to just fall into line with a prescribed plan that should prepare my heart.
As I move through Holy Week, I am less concerned about what I reveal to others and more interested in grasping again, the reality of the depth of my sin, the incredible sacrifice of Jesus death on the Cross and the magnitude of hope and new life that results from Christ’s Resurrection.
I do hope that this week I will understand in even a deeper way which will allow me to live an even more lively faith.
