Filey Parish People blog in Holy Week -Good Friday :Mothers Union (2)


   a path of suffering and grief...

In the place of Holy Week
we look with sorrow as Christ weeps
in the garden of suffering,
and prepares to unleash
the cosmic consequences of the cross.

We long to turn from the distress of his anguish;
to hide from the result of our sin.
Yet Christ calls us to watch with him
as he wrestles with grief in the place of darkness.

In the place of Holy Week
let us walk in faith through the garden of suffering;
accompanying Christ on his path to the cross.

Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane...
he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them,
“My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death.”    Matthew 26:36 -38
