What I’m Reading This Holy Week

As the 1928 and REC Books of Common Prayer assign for the daily offices, I’m reading the Gospel of St. John, chapters 14 through 17.

That we can read what Jesus said to his disciples the night before his crucifixion is like the Holy of Holies to me. And there are so many sayings in these chapters that mean a lot to me. The whole passage is so intimate, revealing much of the heart of Jesus before his departure.

I can’t do it justice with words. Who can?

I know reading it during Holy Week brings home its intimate yet solemn nature that much more to me.
