Collect: Almighty ever-living God, who as an example of humility for the human race to follow caused our Savior to take flesh and submit to the Cross, graciously grant that we may heed his lesson of patient suffering and so merit a share in his Resurrection.
We’re finally here. Quadragesima is over. We are now in Holy Week. The liturgical calendar and all of human destiny has its pinnacle in this week.
To quote one of the homilies from today:
“Brothers and sisters, now is not the time to question; now is not the time to doubt; it is however the time to follow Jesus into Jerusalem, onto Golgotha, and into the open tomb.”
It was the shortest homily I’ve ever heard in my life so far. Let us prepare ourselves. It is almost time.
