    Personal reflections on faith and life at There Will Be Bread.

    And the blog from my home parish, The Parish Blog of St. Edward the Confessor.

Monday Musing

Holy Week is here – how was your Palm Sunday? I kept this community in prayer as I spent many hours at my home parish of St. Edward the Confessor. We have much to ponder as we enter Holy Week.

I got a note from Father Jerry yesterday, as he described his experience of serving at mass in St. Peter’s Square. He said:

“The Vatican was amazing this morning.  Perfectly organized, about 100,000 people – so they say.  It was daunting to walk down the sea of people for communion.”

Let us enter this Holy Week with prayer and hope in our hearts. We all must die, we all will rise. That is our faith and our life in and with Christ our Lord.

Prayers and blessings to one and all who visit these pages, from near and far. You are a gift to our community, no matter who or where you are.

  1. Fran, thank you for your prayers and blessings. I’m so grateful to you for keeping me tethered to God and the Church. I can get up in the middle of the night and without fail, you are there and I feel God’s presence. Blessings to you this Holy Week, Jer…

  2. I want to echo here Jer’s thoughts.
