Mass and the other sacraments are not celebrated today, in keeping with ancient tradition. Yet even as we commemorate Christ’s death on the cross, we remember that Christ is in our midst, risen from the dead.


  • What did you notice about how the church was prepared for today’s Celebration of the Lord’s Passion?

  •  When today can you set apart quiet time for prayer and listening to the Lord’s voice, contemplating his total gift of himself that we might live?

  • Is there anyone whose forgiveness you seek? Is there anyone you need to forgive? Ask Christ who forgave those who crucified him, for grace to take a stope forward, no matter how small.
