Holy Week reflections and activities
From St. John Eudes: We must carry on the war against sin which Jesus began on earth. (SJE, OC 1:173)
From St. Mary Euphrasia: " How shall we spend this holy season:, Firstly, always united to the will of God... Leave God free to act. Perhaps you say to yourself: I do want to despoil myself, to die to myself, " but if we really examine ourselves we shall see that we want to do it our way instead of according to God's will. So he in his great mercy, puts His hand on us, strikes, prunes, removes everything that prevents us living for Him alone. So with humility and submission, let us leave Him free to act. If you are generous enough to allow yourself to be crucified like our dear Lord, to die with him, to bury your poor human nature in the tomb, like Him you will leave it glorious to be born again to divine life. This begins on earth in the mysterious darkness of Faith and will be completed in the splendour of glory, when we shall be able to say with truth: it is not we who live but God who lives in us. (SME, Conference 25)
