Praying in Holy Week

March 28, 2023

Whatever the season of Lent has been like for you this year, Holy Week provides a renewed opportunity to stop and reflect. With these reflections from St Beuno's Outreach, you can resolve to find a little time each day to consider Jesus’s last days as he journeys towards his Father, and to ponder what that means to you.

Perhaps you'll find yourself asking Jesus to show you that same Way as you accompany him this week.

St Beuno's Outreach write: 'Our booklet this year takes its inspiration from a reflection by Fr Tony Nye SJ (1933–2022) on ‘The Way of Holy Week’:

Jesus showed us the way throughout his whole life on earth, but this way becomes particularly clear and calls to us most profoundly in the events of Holy Week, not only by Jesus’s words, however striking they are, but by his actions and what he suffered, beyond words.
Those events invite us to enter upon this way interiorly, through the words, actions and silences of the liturgy. Through that liturgy we make a commitment of faith to know Jesus more clearly, as individuals, but also as pilgrims together.

Thinking Faith, 11 April 2014

With these words as our guide, each daily reflection invites us to explore a particular way we can journey towards the Father. As we contemplate the readings and actions of the liturgy and ponder the images, we might ask ourselves anew:"‘What is the meaning of this Way for me in my daily life?" '
