Lenten Reflection

Reflections on the Gospel during Lent by Fr Michael Coughlan - Assistant Priest of St Bonaventure's Local Pastoral Area

Holy Week

I've never been very good with rollercoasters at theme parks, I'm not someone who can look ahead at the height & the drop then scream with excitement. I tend to close my eyes  & try to ignore the knot in my stomach! Yet every year we are invited to enter into the greatest of emotional rollercoaster rides, we call it Holy Week. Each day of the week builds the tension towards its climax. Each day brings a new twisted the story. Like many other people I'm always looking for the happy ending but it is important for us to love each moment of the story in the drama that is Holy Week.

Let us this week look not only at Jesus but also at the disciples because in many ways their reactions are our reactions. At times we too abandon or betray Jesus out of fear, out of personal interest, because sometimes we don't want to stand out, we'd rather not be exceptional. Also like the disciples when we meet the risen Christ, are we willing to accept his mercy, are we ready to be forgiven? That is the truly great message of Holy Week that as St Paul puts it, what proved how much God loves us is that Christ died for us whilst we we still sinners!!!
