Yesterday we marked Palm Sunday, with Jesus coming into Jerusalem, surrounded by the crowds waving palm branches and singing Hosanna. Now we turn to the events that lead us up to the Cross and beyond.
If you were using Phil’s Lent reflections, you will have read in Week 4 of how Mary sat at the feet of Jesus and listened to what he was saying. Now she takes it a step further and gifts Jesus with her perfume and her devotion.
Imagine the scene and enter into it, perhaps as Mary or as one of the disciples. How do you feel as you watch it unfold?
How do you listen to Jesus?
Ask him to speak to you and spend some time in silence. Don’t worry if you don’t hear anything, simply enjoy the silence and his presence.
Offer him your devotion and ask him to lead you through this Holy Week.
