As we come to the Easter Triduum - the Holy days of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter - my plan is to send out reflections that accept that we are doing things very differently this year. We cannot experience the dramatic liturgy of the services of this season together. (Although the Diocese of Exeter and Church of England websites will give opportunities to follow services on line and I attach a mailing from the BBC on Easter programming look out for Britain's Easter Story on Good Friday and Easter Sunday). My reflections are focusing on how we draw what we are experiencing this year into our journey with Jesus through these days.
My prayer is that we in turn may draw strength from Jesus' journey to the cross and his resurrection for the things our world is going through this Easter 2020.
With my love and prayers as we travel through the Triduum in spirit together.
