Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in Holy Week

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in Holy Week

Holy Monday

Gospel Reading:     John 12:1-11

Ideas for Prayer: 

For those working on the “front line” who are pouring out their love and offering themselves in their care for others

For the poor, across the world, remembering those who live in “hidden poverty” with great dignity

For everyone who is doing their best at this time


Holy Tuesday

Gospel Reading:        John 12:20-36

Ideas for Prayer: 

 For those who are learning about the Christian faith and seek to know more

For those who do not live in the country they identify as home

For all refugees and, at this time, especially for those living in refugee camps


Holy Wednesday

Gospel Reading:      John 13:21-32

Ideas for Prayer: 

For for all those who feel betrayed by friends or society

For those you trust and who trust you.

For those in high office and positions of responsibility, especially at this time of global crisis


Ideas for something active:

Saying Compline:

We have marked the first three days in Holy Week over the past few years by saying Compline, the night prayers of the church, by candlelight, arriving and leaving in silence.  Download the order of service from the web-site to join in at 8.30pm each evening, or use the prayers when it suits you – perhaps before you go to bed.

Being Prepared:

One of the things that helps us to understand the events of Holy Week is our knowledge of the happy ending to the story.  We always see the crucifixion in the light of Easter Day.

Use time on each of these three days to prepare something for your home to celebrate Easter when it arrives.  You could, bake a cake, decorate eggs, create a flower arrangement, make an “Alleluia” banner for your window……and anything else that will help you to make Sunday different, special and a great celebration.  If you’d like to e-mail photographs, we may be able to put a collage on the web-site.
