Walk with the Community of Redwoods in our celebration of the Triduum. Each day, from Holy Thursday until Easter, we will update this post with new details of our liturgy. Have a very Blessed Holy Week.
May Christ's gift of self-giving love console and strengthen our hearts especially in this time of great suffering.
In today’s liturgy we behold Jesus’ self-gift in the washing of the feet ritual and in the Eucharist where Jesus offers his body and his blood for the world. Self-giving is an act of agape: unconditional love, the highest form, the deepest form of love…This is the diptych of today’s two rituals and of what we will be participating in.
Listen to the Chapter Talk here:
The gospel of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead, is the last of the ‘signs’ in St. John’s gospel where Jesus reveals in his person the glory of God. The context for ‘believing’ in John’s gospel involves an encounter, an encounter with Christ.
Conversion to a deepened faith: the eye of the heart continually needs this transformation…transformation into a living and growing faith.
