For the second year in a row, we’ll not be at church on Palm Sunday, and I won’t be in charge of the donkey.
The idea came to me when I was gathering up the stubs of taper candles that we used for our Easter Vigil.
When I worked with youth, one of my favorite events was an agape meal. It started as a Seder and I eventually started calling it “What Would Jesus Eat” which I found hilarious.
Apparently, there are different kinds of ‘alone.’
Palm Sunday will be here in just a few short days and I am not ready for it. I’m not ready for Holy Week as a priest, as a parent, or as an individual person trying to follow Christ. And yet, it’s coming.
It can be difficult for our children to the stories of Holy Week. Here are some tips for preparing children for the Passion.
One of the most delightful ways to observe Lent with children is to share stories about the life of Jesus including his death and resurrection, and Easter traditions.
Good Friday displays how God in Christ relates to humans in and through suffering.
This Holy Week, God will be at work in us in ways we cannot yet ask or imagine.
Hope is the word I’m clinging to during this Lent.
