I dunno what came over me really. Sorry, everyone. Thank you for your comments, your support, your prayers and your words of wisdom and insight.
Had a tough Maundy Thursday, but thanks to the coming together of the parish and the beauty of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper Liturgy, this dark day was transformed and we turn turn to the rest of the Triduum with renewed vigour.
I can be such an idiot sometimes…
In Control, the biopic of the life of Ian Curtis from Joy Division (the soundtrack to my adolescence), Curtis says about how he gives his all, and how much it takes it out of him. I have nowhere near his creativity, and only touch the edge of the creativity and wonder of the Creator, and yet there are echoes in that. Sorry. Sorted now.
A Prayer before the Cross
Jesus was divine, but he did not cling to his equality with God, but emptied himself and became as we are and accepted death on the cross. But God raised him high and gave him the name above every name, that at the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow and that every tongue should proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Let us pray: let your blessing, O Lord, come down on us who have commemorated the death of your son in the hope of rising again with him. May we be aided by the prayers of the sorrowful Virgin Mary and grow in faith and in certainty of eternal redemption. We ask this through Christ the Lord. Amen.
