holy week message

Pause, Reflect, Pray

There is time for everything.

There is a time to be born, a time to live. There is time for joys and pains, for triumphs and defeats. There is a time to get sick, a time to die.

Meantime, there Holy Week is a time to pause, to reflect, to pray.

We pause to think and repent for the sinful things we have done and the virtuous things we failed to do. We pause to reflect that life is but a loan from God who in due time will take it back. We pause to pray for our families, our communities, our country.

Thus we make this week truly a holy one.
