We know that this is not just a recounting of the history of what happened to Jesus, but rather a reminder of how we can die and rise with Jesus everyday.
Jesus lives in us, his faithful people. Our trials and sufferings are linked to his divine passion, death and resurrection.
Let us truly prepare our hearts to rise with Christ next weekend at Easter. May this Holy Week be a blessing to everyone!
And let us continue to pray for one another.
