Our online Holy Week retreat will remain available for the First Week of Easter. You can do it anywhere, anytime at your convenience.
Here are the links.
In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, our online Holy Week retreat this year is called “THE THREE DOORS TO MERCY: THE UPPER ROOM, THE CITY, AND HELL.”
This Holy Week, three special doors lead to God’s mercy. They are found in the Upper Room, the City of Jerusalem, and Hell.
Each of these doors will open on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Black Saturday. Learn about these virtual doors of mercy. Find the key to each of them, and walk through them.
Begin with a short Pre-Retreat Exercise. This will take about five minutes. Click HERE.
If you have friends you’d like to invite to the retreat, send them here or ask them to register HERE.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Our online retreat will feature video clips and music, so it would be ideal if you can make sure you have your earphones/speakers.
This Palm Sunday homily is based on Luke 19:28-40.
The liturgy of Palm Sunday is marked by the jubilant waving of palm leaves and the somber reading of the Passion narrative.
Talk about contrasts!
To the cheers of the crowd, our Lord enters the city of Jerusalem, riding a humble donkey. He does that not only to fulfill Scripture, but also to demonstrate the kind of kingdom he is inaugurating. In just a few days, Jesus will be exiting the same gate with the same crowd singing to a different tune: A total failure by every appearance, Jesus marches to a brutal death reserved for the worst criminals of the Roman Empire.
