When there is more than one spare minute in a day (ie when I am on holiday next week) I shall update you (with pics) on this year’s marathon that was Holy Week. Btw, the diet is going awfully well this week strangely enough – 4lbs lost somewhere!
Chrism Mass – same flipping Britten Missa Brevis again!
Garden of Repose – helpers made all the difference and it was stunning.
Maundy Thursday – feet were washed by +Alan and me; food was good but a request for wine next time (the blood of Christ not being enough!), altars were stripped and a rather noisy Vigil at the altar of repose. ‘Leave silently’ doesn’t mean the same to everyone!
Good Friday Stations of the Cross for children – huge turnout (30?) and they loved their little purple crosses to take away. Good questions too.
Good Friday Stations for grown-ups – +Alan did us proud.
Son of Man movie was wonderful and very apt. Hot cross buns went down well after too.
Service of Nails – tears and candles.
Today – off to clean the altar from top to bottom and photocopy even more stuff. Pray for photocopier.
Vigil tonight at 8pm if you have the stamina…
