The full title for this weekend is “Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord“, what most recognize as the start of Holy Week. Today, after weeks of quiet preparation of Lent and flurry of activities normally began and all the smells and bells of our parish’s journey would begin.
One of the amazing things about this time of separations has been the response of so many to become mobilized in new, creative ways. This reflection is our way to reach out. It was not intended to replace the Mass, but to give each viewer a chance to enter into the readings and prayers for this weekend.
We do not have the ability to live-stream from either of our rural parishes. There are many Masses available to you on television or online. On our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1071645112898015) we wlll make an effort to update you on some you may wish to consider.
If you are having trouble watching the video from our website, we recommend you go to our Facebook page. They have significantly more bandwidth and are optimized to provide media for you.
May God bless you, your family and friends; may God bless each of us and continue to hold each of us in his hands as we enter into Holy Week.
“The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.” (Psalm 34)
