Our steps have brought us here. Following him on his donkey, we enter into Jerusalem. Beginning today using your senses and your imagination open yourself to the experience of Holy Week. One day, imagine what you would here in the streets, in the singing, in the prayers. Another day, imagine what textures would surround you. What would you be tasting? Smelling?
Enter in and sing, pray, whisper, shout. Enter in and participate in these holy days with the One who led you here step-by-step.
Breath Prayer: “Enter in” “Jerusalem”
Prayer: Loving Spirit fill our senses with these holy days. Draw us close, so that when the Alleluia’s grow silent and the weeping fills the night, we feel your loving presence. Amen.
