Holy Week Message

Lord Jesus, as we lay you to rest and come away with still & sorrowful hearts; bless our humble efforts.  Bless us with your true peace; strengthen us in courage in the face of every cross found so often in our cruel world.  Give us a tenderness for all who share your wounds so that the gentle love we feel for you may be offered to every victim too.
