An Invitation to Holy Week, Easter & Beyond


O God of unchangeable power and eternal light: Look favorably on

your whole Church, that wonderful and sacred mystery; by the effectual working of your providence, carry out in tranquility the plan of salvation;

let the whole world see and know that things which were cast down are being raised up, and things which had grown old are being made new,

and that all things are being brought to their perfection by him through whom all things were made, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


As well as any prayer I know, this prayer captures the essential journey from Palm Sunday to the Easter Dawn and beyond. Though it may not always seem to be a tranquil journey for Jesus during these coming days, and we know our journey seem far from tranquil more often than we would like, God is persistently putting before us the invitation and opportunity to change. This invitation is rooted and grounded in love: a love without exception. It is steeped through and through with the truth that God wants more than anything to accompany us on the journey.


Please accept this invitation to join us as we discover that we are being made new in ways beyond our imagination, but not beyond God’s.

Blessings and peace,
