My Priest’s Palm Sunday Challenge
As I sat through the Palm Sunday service, I had an epiphany.
Well, it was the Mass, combined with some devastating health news from a friend (offer up some prayers for her) and some other things brewing in our household and extended family.
My balance is off. Yours too?
As we begin the holiest week of the year, I’m finding myself wanting desperately to connect, while at the same time wanting to disconnect. My pastor urged us to enter into this week without distraction, without the extras and live it, one holy Mass at a time.
That Holy Spirit, He’s a good one.
I’ll be logging off from the blog this week and largely off social media. I just think my heart needs this week to recharge, to reset. The kids have a glorious five-day weekend ahead and there are Easter egg hunts with neighbors, brunch with my parents, lots of Masses (emphasis on the lots!) and some beautiful moments.
I guess I just don’t want to miss them.
If you need a little Team Whitaker fix, I wrote this post a bit ago about celebrating Holy Week with your kids. And, I hear that Jennifer is posting the podcast from her radio show sometime soon. I’ll share that when I have it.
May you have a blessed week, a glorious Easter and some beautiful prayer time with God. He’s waiting for you.
Enjoy your Holy Week and Happy Easter!
