22Mar Presider’s Page for 22 March (Lent 5)

In just over ten days time, the Easter Triduum will begin, at sunset on Holy Thursday. Today we pray for all the adults and children who will be baptised at Easter. And we ask that we may be fit and ready to renew our own baptismal promises.

22Mar 22nd March. 5th Sunday of Lent

Into the Valley of Death
One focus during Lent is to to reflect on our own death and to see our way through it. Whoever enters the valley of death does not walk alone. Jesus is with us because he's been there before and knows what it is like. Moreover he promises us that just as he rose from the dead so will we. We will live again -- in a new way, like a plant springing from the sown seed!
