As we approach Holy Week, we find ourselves with an opportunity to refresh our faith from within. Without the ability to join with our parish family during this holiest of weeks,
we must be resourceful and resilient in living out our faith
and continuing to spread the word of God.
I want to remind you that
the graces are still going to be there
. This year, the difference is that if we don't choose to live it, there won't be any external obligations to lead us into the mysteries.
This year could potentially be the most authentic Holy Week we've ever lived!
We are ready to enter into the Holy Triduum tomorrow: Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday.
Let's finish Lent well
. Let's do it together even though we are apart. Pray for our Clear Water Academy community. It is in moments like these that we have always pulled together and grown stronger.
Please receive the
two ideas below
as opportunities to live these days well and be assured of my prayers for you and your families as we accompany Jesus along the Way of the Cross and arrive at Easter with joy in our hearts for what he has done for each one of us.
