Holy Week, April 13-19, 2014
cross 2012

This will be the final Prayer-Study-Action e-bulletin for Lent 2014. During Holy Week, we'll send reflections to you early each morning for Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday. We hope that these resources have helped you in your Lenten journey, deepening the experience of the season for yourself, your family, your local group and community. If you missed any resource and want to find it, you can click here on our Lent 2014 webpage where we are archiving all of our Lenten resources. 
    Also, if you or your community are planning or participating in a Way of the Cross witness on Good Friday, email me at jzokovitch@paxchristiusa.org and I'll add your information to our Good Friday Way of the Cross webpage
     May the peace of Christ be with you during your observance of Holy Week.


In peace,

Johnny Zokovitch

 PRAY: Christ has no body
by St. Teresa of Avila
Christ has no body now but yours,
No hands but yours,
No feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which
Christ's compassion must look out at the world.
Yours are the feet with which
He is to go about doing good.
Yours are the hands with which
He is to bless us now.

"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" (Mt 27:46)  


Last Sunday's reflection focused on the challenge of living every day without fear in the hope of the resurrection. Today's passion reading reminds us that the call to practice resurrection is not some Pollyanna-ish walk in the park. The gospel clearly shows us that those who follow Jesus, who live like him and love like him, will most likely get nailed like him.

     The daily practice of resurrection does not exempt us from the pain and suffering of this mortal life....
