Meditation for Holy Week 2019

This week is surely an emotional rollercoaster ride of dramatic contrasts: last supper, first eucharist; self-serving, others-serving; passive Saviour, aggressive crowd; secular power, spiritual sovereignty; faithless men, faithful women; humiliation, exaltation; shattered hope, restored faith; tears, joy; death, life. It is within this last set of opposites that the other contrasts ultimately find themselves. It is the week when the harbingers of life finally triumph over those things that speak of death. From the empty tomb we hear the shout: “In the midst of death, we are in life.” No wonder it is called Holy Week: we are indeed on holy ground.
