The Mystery of Love, Suffering and The Cross

Today is Palm Sunday and we enter into this Holy Week, the last week before celebrating the triumph of Easter, and there are often conflicting feelings of excitement and pain.

Human existence is a journey of faith and as such, moves ahead more in shadows than in full light, and is no stranger to moments of obscurity and also of complete darkness.

Today, as we are still in Covid-19 lockdown in the UK, and the churches are closed, I tuned in to a livestream Mass with a church I used to visit regularly for a time, St Cecelia & St Anselm, Holborn, London.

Easter Sunday Of The Resurrection Of The Lord

During the Easter Vigil, the Church reads the account of creation as a prophecy. In the Resurrection, we see the most sublime fulfilment of what this text describes as the beginning of all things.
