Holy Week starts today, 25 March, Palm Sunday, nudging the Annunciation to 9 April, the first unimpeded day after Low Sunday. We are now nearing the summit, the pinnacle, the climax of Lent. Hopefully, we have used Forelent to dispose ourselves to the rigours of this holy season.
May the sacrifices that we offer, and the discipline to which we submit our bodies, the devotions that year after year we revisit, the alms that we give, redouble our joy and mirth on that gladsome Sunday when the women discovered the tomb of the Lord empty.
Ieiunemus, oremus, eleemosynam et demus.
