Meditations for Holy Week: Wednesday


“See, you lowly ones, and be glad; you who seek God, may your hearts revive!” (Psalm 69:33).

As we reach the middle of our Holy Week our waiting turns to anticipation. Spending a little time in prayer each day has helped us to identify some of our weakness and times we need to turn quickly to Christ for help. If you have not gone already during Lent, today may be your last chance to go to Confession. Most churches do not have times available once the Triduum begins. If you can’t find a time for Reconciliation, or if you can’t fit it into your schedule, spend some of your daily prayer time doing an examination of conscience. If you are in the habit of praying The Liturgy of the Hours the examination is a natural part of Night Prayer.

As we reflect on today’s readings, especially Isaiah’s words foretelling Our Lord’s suffering, let us seek forgiveness for times we have caused others to suffer.
