+JMJ+ I can’t believe it’s already here but it is. Holy Week, and Monday almost gone as I write this. I want to go back, I want to do a better job of preparing. But the days of the calendar keep pressing forward and so I must, too. Here are some things that I think will help me—and you—enter more fully into this Holy Week, and even beyond into the rest of the year.
Video, Praying Through Holy Week, by Fr,. Mike Schmitz
Video, The Paschal Mystery (Aquinas 101), with Fr. Thomas Joseph White, OP.
Video, Stations of the Cross by St. Alphonsus Liguori – Sacred Art Series, Narrated by Fr. Z.
Video, Stations of the Cross by Ven. Fulton J. Sheen – Bishop Fulton Sheen’s Way of the Cross (Traditional)
Video, the Jewish Roots of Holy Week, by Dr. Brant Pitre, excerpt.
Video, Dr. Ted Sri on Catholic Holy Week – The Augustine Institute Show with Dr. Tim Gray
Video, The Triduum Explained, Including Why There is No Mass on Good Friday and When Jesus Resurrected, by Fr. Chris Alar.
Video playlist, The Stations of the Cross (Dana and Fr. Kevin Scallon) I discovered this on CD back when I worked in the Catholic bookstore. I played it nonstop for days, then it went into rotation with their Rosary CD and the Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos.
Video, Pray The Sorrowful Mysteries with Dana and Fr. Kevin Scallon. The CD this was taken from is part of how I learned to pray the Rosary. I also had that little blue Pray the Rosary booklet, and a friend prayed the Rosary with me as we rode to work a few times a week.
Thanks for visiting the blog and reading. May we grow in holiness and virtue during this Holy Week, and, by His grace, become the saints the Lord intends us to be. God bless you, and may His peace be always with you. +JMJ+
Join me on Fridays for the Rosary Project Live on Twitter at 8pm ET, 7pm CT, to cultivate a culture of Light, Life, Love, Truth, Beauty, and Goodness, for the conversion of sinners, and for the salvation of souls. There’s also a Rosary on the blog you can use anytime.
