a word from Fr. Benjamin Gildas about Holy Week 2020

This year for Holy Week and Easter, worship is changed, not ended. Our theme this program year at IHS is "Master, Teach Us to Pray." So for Holy Week this year we are learning to pray more deeply and create rituals of home spiritual practice by praying the worship services of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Vigil of Easter as home worship. It's my hope that this will remind us all that the Church is not a place we visit, but it is who we are, its our identity. We're all longing to be with others during this time, but its most important that we be with Jesus and draw on his love and strength this Holy Week.

 

These services are designed to be used alone, with your family, or whom you live with. You may wish to create a Home Sacred Space to use for your home worship. I also created videos for you to explain how to use the home worship materials and to talk about the importance of these holy days leading to Easter.

 

Additionally, our theologian-in-residence and I created discussion podcasts wherein we discussed the Bible readings for each of the days of the Triduum and each Sunday during this crsis.

 

I pray each of you has a blessed Holy Week as you walk the way of the Cross and follow Jesus to his death and resurrection. I am praying these services with you and I am praying for you. If you have any questions at all please reach out to me. I love and miss you all, and I hope this helps you have a most blessed Easter.
