REFLECTIONS FOR PRAYER AND WORSHIP
Brothers and Sisters,
We are almost at the close of the season of Lent. I hope this season has been a time of blessing and grace for you, even in the midst of the death and dying situations that we have all been facing. On Palm Sunday, we begin Holy Week with the prayerful remembrance of the Messianic entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. It is my hope and prayer that meditating on the courageous entry of Jesus into hostile territory will bless us all with courage and hope during these difficult and troublesome times.
I continue to walk with you in spirit and prayer. I have prepared the following reflections for you for Palm Sunday and for Holy Week worship at home, alone or with family. I hope that it helps you as you celebrate Palm Sunday and Holy Week. Please check back for reflections for Easter Sunday.
God bless you and your family.
Fr. Gus Tharappel
WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT DURING DIFFICULT TIMES
Do not anticipate the unpleasant events of this life by anxiety; rather anticipate them with the perfect hope that, as they happen, God, to whom you belong, will protect you. He has protected you up to the present moment; just remain firmly in the hands of His providence and He will help you in all situations and at those times when you find yourself unable to walk, He will carry you.
St. Francis de Sales
DO NOT WISH TO BE ANYTHING BUT WHAT YOU ARE, AND TRY TO BE THAT PERFECTLY.
St. Francis de Sales
