Approaching Holy Week

 This is really a 'holy' week and we begin with the liturgy of Palm Sunday and hear the first account of the Passion of Jesus Christ. Probably the passion narratives were the earliest written texts and probably they came from the way the early Christians in Jerusalem recalled the sequence of events and even visited the places where the events occurred. 

I am still going up the mountain to pray, but I think I am also spending time with Jesus in the garden where He feels alone as He struggles to accept all that is to come; and then I see Judas coming to betray Jesus with a kiss and all his friends flee and leave Him alone. Let us try to stay with Him in this Holy Week that begins tomorrow and ends with Easter Sunday.
