March LilyYearly Rhythm

5th April 2015
Holy Week, Good Friday, Easter Day
Year B
Colours: Purple for Holy Week,
White or Gold for Easter Day.

This week is Holy Week.  It is holy in that we set it aside to specifically and intensively focus on the events of the week in Christ’s journey which culminated in death and resurrection.  I have given you the set readings for each day (thanks to www.gbod.org).  If you do not find time to reflect on all the readings, focus on the Gospel readings.  This week all you are asked to do is read the story.  But read it slowly and be open to God’s Spirit.  This is God’s work of salvation for you and your world.

A Story of Love

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son….” John 3:16

gather round
I have a story to tell
of one who reached inside himself
and took a handful of love
like a pile of stardust
and said: this is for you
it is all you need
it is all you will ever need
there is enough here
to change the whole world
take it

many laughed at him
mocked him
and ignored the invitation

but some dared to take it
and those who did
noticed something about this love
they found they could do what the gift-giver could do
they could stand with the lost
welcome the traveller
eat with the hungry
they found themselves doing what the man first did to them
give something of themselves to others
they became like the man
offering themselves
and as they offered themselves
others took the invitation
and many still do
and many still trust
it is enough to change the whole world

A holy week of statement of faith

some shout hosanna
some shout crucify
some shout Jesus
some shout Barabbas
some wave palms
some shake their fists
today we choose…
some break bread
some break silence
some proclaim Jesus
some deny Jesus
some carry the cross
some run from the cross
today we choose…

some are angry
some rejoice
some anoint with costly perfume
some complain at the waste
some like the light
some prefer the shadows
today we choose…

some weep
some conspire
some follow
some hide
some believe
some betray
today we choose

to shout for life
to follow the cross
to break bread
to hold belief
to trust love
and tell the world
we choose to follow Jesus

29 March 2015
Palm Sunday, Year B,
Colours: Red or Purple

At the end of Lent:
“Let us enter the city with God today, let us sing Hosannas to our king, to the Son of God, riding on a donkey. With shepherds and prostitutes, with the blind and the leper, with the abandoned and the oppressed, let us shout for joy at Christ’s coming and follow the One who welcomes the sinner and dines with the outcast. Let us touch and see as God draws near, riding in triumph towards the Cross.” (Christine Sine)

Lectionary Readings for this week (thanks to www.gbod.org) This is the sixth Sunday in Lent (Palm Sunday.)

Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29    This is the processional psalm traditionally used on this day. As some may note, this psalm also provides the basis of the “Benedictus” (“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord”) and the “Hosannas” in the Great Thanksgiving.

Philippians 2:5-11 The way of Jesus Christ — emptying himself, taking the form of a servant, accepting death on a Roman crucifix — is to be the way of life for the people who bear his name.

Mark 11:1-11. Mark’s story of the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. Note that in this version, no one waves palms. In fact, there are no palms at all. Instead we see the entourage with Jesus placing cloaks and “leafy branches” in front of Jesus’ colt as he makes his way through Jerusalem, sort of an impromptu, first-century “red carpet” treatment.

Open to me the gates of righteousness,
that I may enter, and give thanks to the Lord.
We will give You thanks, for You have answered us;
You have become our salvation.
The stone that the builders rejected
has become the chief cornerstone.
This is the Lord’s doing,
and it is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day that the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Philippians 2:5-11 The way of Jesus Christ — emptying himself, taking the form of a servant, accepting death on a Roman crucifix — is to be the way of life for the people who bear his name.

Jesus is Lord

(based on Philippians 2:5-11)

(gradually getting quieter)

Equal with God:
Jesus is Lord
Emptied himself:
Jesus is Lord
Came as a slave:
Jesus is Lord
Found as a man:
Jesus is Lord
Humbly obeyed:
Jesus is Lord
Went to his death:
Jesus is Lord
Death on a cross:
Jesus is Lord

(getting louder)

God raised him up:
Jesus is Lord
Gave him the name:
Jesus is Lord
Higher than all:
Jesus is Lord
Every knee bow:
Jesus is Lord
All tongues confess:
Jesus is Lord

Hold on to the Hosannas

(inspired by the events in Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11,

Luke 19:29-44, John 12:12-19)

Let us stay with the Hosannas for a while
Let us let them keep on ringing in our ears
Hosanna!
Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord
Instead of rushing on to hear the cries
that came later in the week
Let us stay with the Hosannas
Maybe once we have heard those
in a new way
we will be ready
to make the rest of the journey
A journey that was hastened
and given new purpose
by those Hosannas
For those Hosannas were not
simply the innocent cries
of palm branch waving children
Those Hosannas were the war cries of adults
tired of the oppression
of occupying forces
Those hosannas
were the hopeful cries
of a nation seeking liberation.
Those Hosannas
were an investment of hope
in one they thought would deliver.
Those Hosannas
that we have sanitized over the years
rang out in clear insurrection
sealing the fate
of one who rode on a donkey.
so, let us stay with the Hosannas
Let us wrest them from the lips of children
and allow them to ring in our ears
and spew from our mouths
as a call to action
a call to justice
a call to love.
Let us stay with the Hosannas
even as we journey
with the Christ
who carried those Hosannas
all the way to the cross
and ensured their fulfillment
as the justice and love of God.
Let us stay with the Hosannas.

The Fifth Sunday in Lent Year B, Colour: Purple

 Lent offers us all a very special opportunity to grow in our relationship with God and to deepen our commitment to a way of life, rooted in our baptism.  In our busy world, Lent provides us with an opportunity to reflect upon our patterns, to pray more deeply, experience sorrow for what we’ve done and failed to do, and to be generous to those in need.  [Source]

 Declaration of Grace / Absolution

(inspired by Jeremiah 31: 31-34)

The Lord comes to us with a new covenant, saying:

“I will write my law on your hearts;
I will forgive your wrongdoing
and remember your sins no more.”

 Sisters and Brothers,
your sins are forgiven;
be at peace.

 Psalm 51:1-12  A reprise of the confession of sin from Ash Wednesday. Today the focus is verse 6 — “therefore, teach me wisdom in my secret heart.”

Prayer

(based on Psalm 51)

 Mercy! Have mercy on me, O God Almighty!
I appeal to your unconditional love that never fails;
Forgive my sin because of your enormous compassion.
Wash away all my badness and make me clean.
All my sins are against you, my Lord –
Again I didn’t trust you, I turned away and did wrong.
You alone are holy and you alone can cleanse me;
Please let me rejoice in you again!
Form my heart to be devoted to you alone, O God,
And revive my spirit to be steadfast in loving you.
Remind me continually that I’m in your presence;
O that your Holy Spirit would thrive in me forever!
Restore my soul with the joy of your mercy
And strengthen my will to seek you continually.
My divided and distracted will is all that I have to give you;|
So I come with my broken heart, humble and convicted.
O God, because of your mercy you will not reject me;
Your smile and your embrace means everything to me!
My reformed heart gives praise to you for all to hear;
O Lord, this is the offering that brings you delight!

Hebrews 5:5-10 Jesus is our great high priest by God’s appointment and made perfect through his obedience and suffering.

Prayer

(inspired by Hebrews 4:14-16; Hebrews 5:7-10)

Father, O God most high,
who dwells in the highest of heavens,
we praise you.

Father, O Lord most exalted,
beyond our thoughts and imaginations,
we praise you.

We celebrate the victory of your Son,
who has overcome death
and saved us from the power of sin.
We rejoice in his exaltation!

Our great high priest
has gone before,
has entered into the Holy of Holies,
and has opened up a way for us to follow.
In his name, we too would enter into your eternal presence,
for he is our priest forever
after the order of Melchizedek.
To him be all praise,
together with you, O Father,
and the Holy Spirit,
one Lord, the same in every age.

Amen and Amen.

A Prayer of St. Ignatius

“Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also.” John 12:26

Jesus, teach me to be generous,
to serve you as you deserve:
to give without counting the cost,
to fight needless of the wounds,
to work and not seek for rest,
to toil and not seek for reward,
save the reward of knowing I am doing your will. Amen.
