April 12, 2019
This Sunday, Palm Sunday, is the start of Holy Week. We will hear the story of Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem and the shouts of " Hosanna! " as he is proclaimed King of kings by those who spread their garments and palm branches along his path. Our palm branches will be blessed as we raise them high in the air as a sign of his victory and as we affirm his kingship with our own shouts of " Hosanna in the highest!"

Jesus' followers were so excited, they were welcoming their new king, the one they thought would save them from the tyranny of the Roman occupation in their land. But, as the reading of the Passion continues with Jesus' arrest and trial, the mood quickly shifts. The shouts of Hosanna are replaced by shouts of “Crucify him! Crucify him!” The story ends with Jesus dying like a criminal on a cross.

The disciples and Jesus' followers didn't know anything about Easter, about the promise of the resurrection. All they knew was that their hopes were gone - buried in the tomb with Jesus. We leave on Sunday with a sense of their sorrow and despair. We also leave knowing that this is not the end of the story.

The Palm Sunday liturgy starts the Holy Week journey which culminates with the Paschal Triduum (three days): starting the evening of  Maundy Thursday , through the evenings of Good Friday and Holy Saturday - The Great Vigil of Easter , and ending the evening of Easter Day ; all celebrating the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. 

The Paschal Triduum is experienced as one liturgy: we wait and pray (vigil) at the altar of repose on Maundy Thursday; then we continue with the reading of the Passion along with the veneration and prayer (vigil) at the cross of Christ on Good Friday; leading us to The Great Vigil of Easter where we gather and pray (vigil) around the new fire to hear the stories of salvation after which we finally process into the celebration of the resurrection of Christ; a celebration that continues Easter Day. 

Sometimes you just have to be there. Sometimes you just have to experience something in order to fully know the meaning of it. Holy Week is one of those times. It is our journey to the joyful discovery of life and hope in Jesus Christ. Come join the journey this week and discover once again, or for the first time, why we call it holy.

Way of the Cross (Stations of the Cross)
We end The way of the Cross (Stations of the Cross) with the final three stations. Responses and unison parts are indicated in boldfaced italics so that you may either pray the stations as a private devotion or pray together with one or more individuals.
Stations Twelve, Thirteen and Fourteen

Opening Devotions

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

We will glory in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In whom is our salvation, our life and resurrection.

Let us pray. (Silence)

Assist us mercifully with your help, O Lord God of our salvation, that we may enter with joy upon the contemplation of those mighty acts, whereby you have given us life and immortality; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Twelfth Station
Jesus Dies on the Cross
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you:
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold your son!” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold your mother!” And when Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, “It is finished!” And then, crying with a loud voice, he said, “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” And he bowed his head, and handed over his spirit.

Christ for us became obedient unto death:
Even death on a cross.

Let us pray. (Silence)

O God, who for our redemption gave your only-begotten Son to the death of the cross, and by his glorious
resurrection delivered us from the power of our enemy: Grant us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his resurrection; who lives and reigns now and for ever. Amen .

Holy God,
Holy and Mighty, Holy
Immortal One, Have
mercy upon us.
Thirteenth Station
The Body of Jesus is placed in the arms
of his Mother
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you:
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

All you who pass by, behold and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow. My eyes are spent with weeping; my soul is in tumult; my heart is poured out in grief because of the downfall of my people. “Do not call me Naomi (which means Pleasant), call me Mara (which means Bitter); for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me.”

Her tears run down her cheeks:
And she has none to comfort her.

Let us pray. (Silence)

Lord Jesus Christ, by your death you took away the sting of death: Grant to us your servants so to follow in faith where you have led the way, that we may at length fall asleep peacefully in you and wake up in your likeness; for your
tender mercies’ sake. Amen.

Holy God,
Holy and Mighty, Holy
Immortal One, Have
mercy upon us.
Fourteenth Station
Jesus is laid in the Tomb
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you:
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who also was a disciple of Jesus. He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. And Joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud, and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn in the rock; and he rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb.

You will not abandon me to the grave:
Nor let your holy One see corruption.

Let us pray. (Silence)

O God, your blessed Son was laid in a tomb in a garden, and rested on the Sabbath day: Grant that we who have been buried with him in the waters of baptism may find our perfect rest in his eternal and glorious kingdom; where he lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

Holy God,
Holy and Mighty, Holy
Immortal One, Have
mercy upon us.
Concluding Prayers
Savior of the world, by your cross and precious blood you have redeemed us:
Save us, and help us, we humbly beseech you, O Lord.

Let us pray. (Silence)

We thank you, heavenly Father, that you have delivered us from the dominion of sin and death and brought us into the kingdom of your Son; and we pray that, as by his death he has recalled us to life, so by his love he may raise us to eternal joys; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

To Christ our Lord who loves us, and washed us in his own blood, and made us a kingdom of priests to serve his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
If you wish to pray all of the stations at one time you will find a PDF with the Opening Devotion, Stations 1 - 14 and the concluding prayers by clicking here .
From The way of the Cross (Stations of the Cross) as found starting on page 55 in The Book of Occasional Services 2018. Responses and unison parts are indicated in boldfaced italics so that you may either pray the stations as a private devotion or pray together with one or more individuals.

Our thanks to Linda Collier for taking the photographs of the station icons. The icons were a gift to Holy Cross given in memory of Nan Edwards by Duncan McKellar.
Lenten Practices

Our Lenten journey is almost over. We hope you have taken time during these 40 days to deepen your relationship with God through the practice of the three pillars of Lent Jesus calls us to observe: prayer, fasting and giving alms.
Evening Prayer

There will be no Evening Prayer this Thursday, April 18th, as we observe the start of the Paschal Triduum (three days) with the Maundy Thursday liturgy at 7 pm. We will resume Evening Prayer services on Thursday, April 25th at 7 pm.

The Way of the Cross (Stations of the Cross)

During our journey through Lent we offered you an opportunity to walk with Jesus on his last day through  The Way of the Cross (Stations of the Cross)  - an ancient practice of 14 devotions, or stations, that start with Jesus' condemnation and end with his burial.

If you wish to pray all of the stations at one time you will find a PDF with the Opening Devotion, Stations 1 - 14 and the concluding prayers by clicking here .

La Posada de Guadalupe Shelter
April Outreach Project
La Posada de Guadalupe Shelter, is a Men’s Shelter in Carlsbad that supports homeless men, migrant workers, day workers, and men in transition to a more independent life. Holy Cross has supported this residential facility since 2015.

The primary need is cash donations (checks made out to Holy Cross with La Posada on the memo line, cash in an envelope with La Posada on the outside of the envelope, or Gift Cards to Costco or Smart & Final). Lupe Ortega, our ministry coordinator for this outreach, shops for bulk items at Costco and Smart & Final so cash donations are very much needed and appreciated.

Other items needed: rice, creamy peanut butter, protein/granola bars, individual juice boxes, individual fruit cups, individual raisin boxes and other items that can fill sack lunches for men who work in the fields each day. 

Please note: La Posada is unable to accept any food items that have an expired, or about to expire, date on the packaging - we request you do not donate expired, or soon to expire, food items as they will have to be thrown away rather than donated. Thank you for your understanding.

Donations accepted from April 1 - 30.

The La Posada Staff and residents are always very thankful and appreciative for our donations.

Our Youth
This Sunday : Legends of the Easter Eggs and Faces V-VII

Legends of the Easter Eggs : This lesson introduces children to the Eastern European tradition of decorating eggs with the symbols of Easter as a way to reclaim a wonderful sign of new life.

 Faces of Easter : The Faces lessons help the kids continue to prepare for the Mystery of Easter. We move towards that Mystery by hearing the stories of Christ's journey toward the cross and resurrection. These stories help us learn about Jesus' life and ministry. 

This week, we remember the work Jesus did as he traveled around, healing people and sharing parables. It's a great chance to make clear to our children that being with people of all kinds, loving them, healing them of their physical and emotional wounds, and sharing truth through stories was the work that God sent Jesus to do--and still sends Jesus to do today. We also focus on Christ as he goes to Jerusalem to become a parable and shows the Twelve - and us - the sacrament of bread and wine and focuses on the faces of Christ on the cross and on Easter.

Note : The lessons for older kids (9-12 years) have arrived. We are working on coordinating storytellers and the lesson schedules. If you are interested in being a storyteller please speak with Sue Baas.

Easter Sunday: There will be no Godly Play on Easter Sunday, April 21st, the kids will attend our Easter worship service. Following the service we will have an Easter Egg hunt!

Caring for God's Creation

As announced several weeks ago we have formed a committee to explore ways we, as a faith community, can help care for our environment as we are called to do in the newly approved question in our Baptismal Covenant:

Will you cherish the wondrous works of God, and protect the beauty and integrity of all creation?
People I will, with God’s help.

This Sunday you may notice some minor changes to the worship booklet - we have reduced the number of pages while still keeping all of the liturgy printed in the booklet. This is a first step in being good stewards of our resources as we continue to look for ways to reduce the amount of recycling and waste we produce; i.e., paper, toner and operation expense of our copier machine. The changes to the worship booklet save a full sheet of paper for each booklet - approximately 60 sheets of paper will be saved each week.

Stay tuned for future announcements as w e continue to explore opportunities to respond to the call of our Baptismal Covenant.

Aids/HIV Awareness Event

Dear Holy Cross,

Thank you to those who have already donated to support my ride! Your contributions will not only help the still critical work of research, care and education needed to end HIV & AIDS, but also give me juice as I train for my 7 day journey from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The ride happens June 2-8, which is coming up fast. 

I’m getting back on my bike after a long, wet winter—conditioning my legs and my back and most importantly my seat — for the long days in the saddle coming up in June. Knowing you’re with me really helps!

If you would like to help sponsor my ride, please visit my donation page at: www.tofighthiv.org/goto/sethlongacre2019  or see me in church for a form you can fill out and mail in.

Thank you!!!

Rev. Seth

Via Crucis: Called to the Wall
Tomorrow, Saturday, April 13
Members of the Episcopal Dioceses of Los Angeles and San Diego, including the Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, assisting bishop of the Diocese of San Diego, the Rt. Rev. John Taylor, bishop of the Diocese of Los Angeles, and the Rt. Rev. Diane Jardine Bruce, suffragan bishop of the Diocese of Los Angeles, will draw attention to the plight of immigrants as they travel the way of the cross, the Via Crucis, in a pilgrimage that begins at the diocesan center in Los Angeles and ends at the US-Mexico border. Pilgrims will read the Stations of the Cross at stops along the 139 mile journey.

All are welcome to join in the pilgrimage. You do not have to participate in the entire journey, you may join at any stop. The caravan will stop at five predetermined spots to pray the stations of the cross, arriving at the border about 3 pm for the last station and celebration of the Eucharist. Travel will be by car caravan.

At the border we will bear witness to the plight of those affected by immigration by celebrating the Eucharist, remembering that Jesus was an immigrant. Please be sure to bring:
  • water
  • sunhat
  • hiking shoes
It is a mile and a-half walk in the dirt and sand to the wall from the Friendship Park parking lot. Please be prepared for the hike.

Tentatively the plan is:
  • Stations 1 to 3 at the Cathedral Center, Echo Park
  • Stations 4 to 6 at St. Michael's, Anaheim & St. Philip's, Lemon Grove at 10:30 a.m.
  • San Diegans are invited to join the pilgrimage at this point
  • Stations 7 to 9 at St. John's, Chula Vista at approximately 11:30 a.m. 
  • Station 10 at the Border Field State Park in the parking lot upon arrival
  • Stations 11 to 13 Along the hike to the border
  • Station 14 at the border wall at approximately 3 p.m.

Bring Icons to Called to the Wall
Participants in this year’s Called to the Wall event are encouraged to bring icons, both flat prints as well as three-dimensional statues. We will bless these with holy water and incense and then place them around us as we celebrate with our Anglican brothers and sisters on the Mexican side of the wall. This is part of a pilgrimage tradition that many before us have started. Click here to see examples .
