Special Prayer to our travelers this week

Lord, be our guide and our protector
on the journey we are about to take.
Watch over us.
Protect us from accidents.
Keep us free from harm to body and soul.
Lord, support us with Your grace when we are tired.
Help us be patient in any trouble which may come our way.
Keep us always mindful of Your presence and love.
Amen.

Holy Week 2017

Sunday: Palm Sunday– Jesus rides into Jerusalem on a donkey. His followers wave palm branches and should”Hosanna to the son of David!”

Did you know that Palm branches signify goodness and victory?

Revelations tells us that we will wave palm branches in honor of Jesus

Monday: On Monday, Jesus returned to Jerusalem. When he got to the temple he saw the money changers. He cleared the steps of the temple and told them that the temple was a place to pray.

Tuesday: Jesus and his disciples went to he temple. The priests tried to trick him and argue with him but Jesus scolded them. After they were finished they traveled to Mount of Olives. Jesus talked about the end of days and the second coming.

Wednesday

 

 

Thursday: Judas accepted 30 silver coins for leading the mob to Jesus. He attempted to identify Jesus with a kiss. Luke 22:47-48

Judas felt remorse. He didn’t even keep the coins. Have you ever felt remorse for something you have done?

March 6

Rice Bowl Spotlight: INDIA-Option for the Poor: Jesus tells us to care for those who are in most need in the world. He reminds us of our Christian duty to give a voice to those who go unheard and to help those who are most vulnerable
