Living through Holy Week with St Josemaria

Tags: Cross, Gospel, Prayer, Following Christ, Holy Week
"Living Holy Week means entering ever more deeply into the logic of God, into the logic of the Cross, which is not primarily that of suffering and death, but rather that of love and of the gift of self which brings life. It means entering into the logic of the Gospel. Following and accompanying Christ, staying with him, demands “coming out of ourselves”, requires us to be outgoing; to come out of ourselves, out of a dreary way of living faith that has become a habit, out of the temptation to withdraw into our own plans which end by shutting out God’s creative action." (Pope Francis, 27 March 2013).

To contemplate the Holy Week through the Gospel, you can download passages by St. Josemaría, in epub and pdf.

"Let us ask the intercession of the Virgin Mary. She teaches us the joy of meeting Christ, the love with which we must look to the foot of the Cross, the enthusiasm of the young heart with which we must follow him during this Holy Week and throughout our lives. May it be so."(Pope Francis,Palm Sunday of the Passion of our Lord 2013).
