Triduum begins…

1 04 2010

The sabbath rest of Stations of the Cross has changed my experience of Holy Week significantly.  No worrying about how many litres of soup arrive each day to feed the volunteers or counting bread rolls or cups…  No need to spend a couple of hours each day scraping the wax out of the lanterns and replacing the candles in the 100+ markers of the stations path.

Hope however you are marking the path to the cross, to the grave, to the new that it brings you an ever-fuller sense of the love that sets us free.  The most moving/enlarging/stirring thing I’ve read this Holy Week is Cheryl Lawrie’s writing for worship in the prison community this weekend…  Do go on over to her site to read the rest if you haven’t already.  May it open a space in you to experience Love ever more fully.

They call today Good Friday

but what could make this day good?

if you have ever believed that love inevitably leads to betrayal

this day says it doesn’t.

if you have ever believed that some people are unlovable, irredeemable

this day says they aren’t.

if you have ever believed that there is a limit to forgiveness

this day says there isn’t.

if you have ever believed you aren’t worth saving

this day says you are.

if you have ever believed that you don’t deserve freedom

this day says you do.

if you have ever believed that fear, anger, hate and despair will always win

this day says it won’t.

this day is good for you.
