As we journey through this holiest of weeks, and especially the Triduum, I invite you to reflect and respond to one or both of the following questions:
- Which character(s) in the Passion story do you find most intriguing (whether they are inspiring or tragic) and why?
- If you could paint a picture or create a sculpture of one moment in the story of Christ’s Passion, what would it be and why?
I invite you to share your reflections in the comments section below.
P.S. For more reflection this Holy Week, Catholic Relief Services shares these resources:
Stations of the Cross (Videos) (also available in Spanish)
Companions on the Journey (Good Samaritan) Digital Retreat (also available in Spanish)
And don’t forget to visit LoyolaPress.com for Holy Week resources.
Most intriguing: As a woman and a mother, I would say the Blessed Mother, because I cannot imagine the pain and anguish of watching your child put to death, yet She never faltered in being with Him in His pain.
For the same reason, the one moment I would capture is Jesus being placed in His Mother’s arms after He’s taken down from the cross. The overwhelming love and grief she must have felt could never be fully captured, yet would be incredible to behold.
