Praying Holy Week 2021
During this last year, all aspects of our lives have been dominated by the Coronavirus pandemic. Far from being absent or turning his back on us, Jesus is with us, supporting us and sharing in our suffering. This Holy Week, we suggest you spend some time each day meditating on the compassion of Jesus (from the Latin compati – ‘to suffer with’). That compassion is for us all, whatever our age or walk of life. Each reflection in this booklet invites us to remember how Jesus in his compassion responded to human need, as we hear him say to us, too:
I know how you feel. You are not on our own. I am with you, let my compassion enfold you. Lean on me.
As we pray through Holy Week with these words, we look forward with hope to Easter Sunday and the Resurrection.
This resource contains prayer material for each day in Holy Week, created by St Beuno's Outreach in the Diocese of Wrexham. Download the leaflet or read on screen.
