Monday of Holy Week – The Journey to Salvation

Invitation to Prayer:

As we enter into the rituals of Holy Week, we are invited to enter more deeply into the Passover journey through death to fullness of Life. We follow Jesus along the way of his passion, death, and resurrection step by step. Our prayer this morning invites to come as we are into this journey.  We begin a pilgrimage … a time of walking and seeking a new heart … a heart seeking pardon, healing and wholeness.  Let us ask for the courage to begin this journey in peace.

Jubilant!

As Easter approaches and I reflect on this Lenten season, I am humbled by an unexpected journey with a relative.  The conversations were rich and meaningful for each of us in different ways.  He is asking me questions about my faith.  I am responding to his questions to the best of my knowledge; but his questions lead me to questions I was not necessarily aware that I had.  In turn, I was led to a deeper Lenten prayer. 

I was shocked when, via text, he asked me to be his sponsor during his RCIA journey to becoming a Catholic.  Sure, many in my family ask me to be a Godparent to their babies and then those children grow up to ask me to be their Confirmation sponsors.  Truth be told, often, I am the choice of last resort because I meet the criteria of ‘practicing Catholic’ where others may identify as Catholic but they have a hard time getting the required sponsor sheet signed by their pastor.
