So, it's Holy Week! the high point of the Church's year. In our household, we as Catholics are called upon to embark on a journey this week as we enter dramatically, prayerfully and personally into the passion, death and resurrection of our Saviour.
It's a solemn and moving time, and for those of us lucky enough to be in the choir, an opportunity to sing some of the most beautiful music, both today on Palm Sunday and during the three services of the Easter Triduum, culminating in the joyful Mass on Easter morning (followed by a jolly afternoon as we bring out the chocolate, crisps or whatever else it was that we gave up for Lent).
The daffodils in the Easter cards I've painted this year symbolise the hope and joy of the Resurrection which follows on from Christ's Passion and Crucifixion. May you be blessed this Easter with this hope and joy.
