Easter Sunday, Year A

He is risen small

Holy Week and Easter Sunday

Sunday 20th April 2014, Year A

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 of them simply 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.
