Dear Friends,

 

Every New Year’s Day I have such good resolutions but usually by the end of the week or month they have faded into oblivion!  The discipline I need to carry them out seems to take a back seat to something easier.

 

In the gospel we cry out “Crucify Him!  Crucify Him!” when just at the beginning of Mass at the procession with the palms we were crying out “Hosanna!  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

 

What a contrast.  One moment we are full of good resolutions and promises to follow Christ but when it comes time to do so and it looks hard or interferes in our schedule or plans, we change our minds.

 

With Holy Week coming, I challenge all of us to enter into and seriously look at the Paschal Triduum, beginning with the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday (April 2

at 7:00pm) continuing with Good Friday (April 3 at 12:30) and  ending with Easter (Saturday, April 4 at 8:30pm or Sunday, April 5 at 9:00 and 11:00) as vital steps toward becoming a more consistent disciple of Christ,  I encourage you to go out of your way to attend these services and give your whole heart to the Lord, who died for each one of us.

 

We enter into Jerusalem with our Lord, we meet him at the Table of Life, we are saved by his crucifixion and we are promised eternity by his resurrection.  He certainly went out of his way to say “I love you!”

                                                        

 

                                             God Bless You,

 

                                                 Sr. Regina Fisher
