I hope this finds you safe and well.
Great that the church has reopened. There's a buzz about the place again.
If you haven't been able to book for Mass (all our Triduum liturgies are now fully booked) keep in mind, they'll all be live streamed.
Today's Palm Sunday gospel is read in the light of the resurrection. What looked like a humiliating and shameful failure for Jesus we know wasn't the end of the story.
As we begin Holy Week, journeying through these final days of this holy season of Lent, maybe, with hindsight, you can look back on something in your own life - maybe some desperately unwanted situation.
Maybe it was some painful time, that seemed like a tragedy at the time, but out of the pain, out of the suffering, out of the tragedy new possibilities came - new beginnings were experienced - new life followed for you.
That's death and resurrection being lived.
Wishing you a peaceful and fruitful Holy Week.
