Filey Parish People blog in Holy Week -Maundy Thursday( Audrey MU ) (2)


Thursday:

  a means of repentance...

During the renewal of Holy Week
when God points out the patches of secret sins
and nettles of resentments within our lives,
may we be ruthless in our dealing of them
with heartfelt repentance.

Let us willingly embrace the toil of remorse
that regeneration may be seen in our lives.  

We marvel at the grace of God
who uses our penitence to bring renewal;
to create beauty from ashes, joy from shame,
life from decay.

During the renewal of Holy Week
let us walk in faith through the garden of our lives
growing ever closer to Christ, through the love of the Father.

He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit,
while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes
so that it will be even more fruitful.    John 15:2
