The Divine Hours of Lent

The Divine Hours of Lent


Maundy Thursday – March 20, 2008

posted by Phyllis Tickle

Jesus, as the Passover meal was ending, said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you. But not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I am coming back again to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I.
“From now on, I will not talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me; but I do as the Father has commanded me so that the world may know that I love the Father.”
Jesus then said, “Arise, let us be on our way.”
Saying 49, Book IV
THE WORDS OF JESUS – A GOSPEL OF THE SAYINGS OF OUR LORD

Holy Saturday - March 22, 2008
Holy Saturday….Always that has seemed to me to be the strangest sort of name to put on this day. Holy? What is holy about utter silence, utter stillness, utter death? Hallowed, yes; but not holy, at least not yet, not for a few more hours. And so today I am caught all day between two tensions. I r

Good Friday - March 21, 2008
As I was nearing the end of the months of compiling the Sayings of Jesus into the The Words of Jesus volume and, even more, during these last five or six weeks since it has been published, I received, and have continued to receive, some fairly thought-provoking questions. I have received enough, in

Lent ends today; or more correctly, this is the last, full day of Lent. Tomorrow is Maundy Thursday, and tomorrow night at sunset, Lent gives way to the Triduum…to the three days that are the culmination of Lent. Tomorrow night, Christian around the world will commemorate the Last Supper, the fina

Tuesday - March 18, 2008
Many long years ago--meaning well over a quarter of a century ago--I wrote a book about Lent entitled Final Sanity. It and/or pieces of it have been re-printed so many times that I don't even have a record of where and when, except to say that it was re-published in toto by Loyola Press some three o
