And so it begins...

... Holy Week is upon us. The sacrifice is before us. The triumph of the cross, the vindication of the resurrection, the joy of a life that never ends and the sins of the world washed away in the blood of God's chosen Lamb.

Have you ever pondered how few of these Holy Weeks, Triduums and Easters we get to celebrate in our earthly pilgrimage? It makes me cherish each one I am privileged to share in all the more.

"We implore You, O Lord, that Your abundant blessing may be upon Your people who have held the Passion and death of Your Son in devout remembrance, that we may receive Your pardon and the gift of Your comfort and may increase in faith and take hold of eternal life..." - Good Friday, Chief Service, Concluding Collect
