Prayer for Holy Week

Prayer for Holy Week

Note: A friend posted this and I loved the prayer.I have decided to use it tdaily during Holy Week this year. And Asked to share it. "Fr. Frank O'Rourke at St. Gabes in Charlotte, NC' offered this prayer for parishioners to try.  I slightly modified the 4th from last line:  Prayer for Holy Week"

God of such unwavering love,
how do I "celebrate"
the passion and death of Jesus?
I often want to look the other way
and not watch,
not stay with Jesus in his suffering.
Give me the strength
to see his love with honesty and compassion
and to feel deeply
your own forgiveness
and mercy for me.
Help me to understand
how to "celebrate" this week.
Help me to bring
my weaknesses and imperfections with me as
I journey with Jesus this week,
so aware of his love.
