The account of the Passion is a vivid story with a variety of characters and much action. To enter into the passage we can read the story slowly and see if we can identify with different characters in the story. Also any one scene within the story can provide us with much food for reflection and prayer. Keep in mind that one of the aims in reflecting on the passage is to discover the GOOD NEWS the story has for us. Here are just a few general pointers for prayer:-
The identity of Jesus is revealed as the Messiah and the Son of God, not with a display of human power, but as one who was prepared to suffer unto death to show us how our God loves us.
Jesus gives us an example of patient endurance and faithfulness in suffering. Suffering is something we all encounter. It is not something that anyone likes but sometimes we cope with it better than others.

The focus for this year’s Trocaire Lenten campaign is on the global water crisis and on how Trocaire is working with communities to
help them gain access to clean water which we take for granted.
Down through the years our parish has been very generous in its response to the Trocaire campaign. Let us be equally generous this year.
This is one special week of the year and thus is called holy. Holy means to be different and to be set apart. This is one week of the year and then we move on. It is a week where we are reminded of Jesus suffering and of the reality of our sin. The sorrow of holy week is brought to an abrupt end with the joy of Easter Sunday.
