Monday of Holy Week

March 30, 2015

JMJ

Blessed Holy Monday!

Entrance Antiphon:
Contend, O Lord, with my contenders; fight those who fight me.
Take up Your buckler and shield; arise in my defense, Lord, my mighty help.

Collect:
Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that, though in our weakness we fail,
we may be revived through the Passion of Your Only Begotten Son.
Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Readings:
Isaiah 42:1-7 (the Messiah comes to rescue, not destroy)
Psalm 27:1-3, 13-14 “The Lord is my light and my salvation”
+John 12:1-11 (Mary anoints Jesus’ feet)

He doesn’t come by force.

He is a fragrance
spilling out
from brokenness
to fill the house,
to breathe new life
into the weariness
of man.

Am I holding my breath against God’s perfume?
Do I expect God to come by force?
