Holy Week Reflection

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die." - John 11:25-26

As we journey through Holy Week and focus on “Holy Week” activities, let us give time to reflect on the passion of Christ this week.

Holy Week is a time to commemorate the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. It's a perfect week for meditation, reflection and strengthen our relationship with God.

Even if some see Holy Week as a as an opportunity to have a vacation or go to beach parties, you can still find time and immerse yourself in prayer during this Holy Week period. Some stay home and do their Visita Iglesia. Filipinos abroad and those who could not go to church can also visit the Visita Iglesia Online website of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines.

May we see the Love of God manifested on the cross and understand what Jesus did to save us. The suffering of Christ, his passion and death, is our healing and salvation. We can bring our hurts, our sorrows, our sufferings, our failures and lay them at the foot of His cross so we can be healed.

Glory of Easter.

Easter is a celebration of the fact that we can meet the risen Christ. His resurrection gives us a message of hope, love, and grace.

May we all be blessed!
