Holy Week

In this week we encounter a whole range of fascinating people

Jesus, whose total identification with humanity brings about a change in the way weare able to live in communion with God.

Peter, Thomas, John and the other disciples who show how difficult it is to be a good disciple

Mary, who must watch with horror as her son is threatened and dies.

Joseph of Arimathea who seeks the body of Jesus to ensure that despite the indignity our respect for him as a person is not glossed over.

And there is Judas and Pilate, perhaps too much to gather them together.

What do we make of all this? Where do we place ourselves in the story?

What is God trying to draw out of us in the mystery of Good Friday and Easter? How will I change, choose, grow, decide as I encounter God this week?
