Holy Week, especially the Triduum of days from Holy Thursday to Easter Sunday, is the pivot of grace every year. It is the space where the Holy Spirit leads us, the Church, to see ‘anew’ the Crucified Jesus and be renewed in heart and mind.
In our celebration of Lent, I have been reading Pope Francis’ monumental encyclical, Laudato Si’, a major writing on our common home, the earth, and the ecological crisis that afflicts the soil, water and air all about us.
Every October, the Catholic Church in the United States observes Respect Life Month. During this time, we pray and reflect on the precious gift of life from the moment of conception to natural death. It is a month during which we are called to deeply internalize the meaning of every human person.
