Remember the journey? It started on Ash Wednesday. That was a time of reflection and anticipation – of knowing what laid ahead in the Season of Lent. Some chose to give up something, like chocolate. Others may have added something, like a daily devotion to the morning regimen. Others were just mindful of what laid ahead.
And now, we have come to the final week – Holy Week…Passion Week. This is where we follow the path to the cross and beyond.
Maundy Thursday: Mandatum – Mandate. Jesus gives us a new commandment to “love one another.” This was given as part of the final instructions to His disciples after the supper in the upper room, where Holy Communion which was instituted, had ended.
Good Friday: A time to impress upon the minds and hearts of believers the tragic consequences of the sins of humankind (which include you and me) and the greatness of the Savior’s sacrifice on the cross.
Tenebrae is the service we use on Good Friday. The service involves the lighting and extinguishing of candles as a reminder of the darkness that covered the earth after the passion and crucifixion of our Savior.
Easter: The celebration of our risen Lord. Christ is Risen…He is Risen Indeed!!!
