Holy Week and Easter are the heart of the Christian year. The unfolding services of Holy Week offer us the opportunity to make our own pilgrimage through Jesus’ last week. It moves from his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, to the Last Supper where he foretells his death and gives his disciples the last great commandment, his anguished prayer in Gethsemane, the shocking events of his betrayal, trial and execution, the desolation of his death, and finally to the dawn of a new world on Easter Sunday.
But it’s also true that these stories can become so familiar that we can be in danger of losing our sense of their revolutionary message about the nature of God. On the eve of Holy Week, James Milne will explore how this great cycle of services evolved and how we can fully enter into them, allowing them to reach our hearts and change our lives.
The Revd James Milne is Sacrist at St Paul’s Cathedral, sharing responsibility for its liturgy. He was previously Convenor of the Liturgy Committee of the Scottish Episcopal Church.
