AT THE CENTER OF THE JESUS MOVEMENT IS THE CHARISMATIC CHRIST

 

The readings this week are provided by Fr. Richard Jones, a Friend of the Fellowship of the Holy Name, and vicar at The Uprising Anglican Mission. Fr. Richard has chosen St. Philip Neri, Apostle of Rome (1515 - 1595) as a teacher of Christian discipleship.

 

On fire with the love of God, Philip Neri brought many souls to Christ by preaching in the marketplace, counseling bishops, caring for the sick, ministering to the poor, and performing many undeniable miracles. Thus it was through the great fruitfulness and Charisma of his ministry that St. Philip Neri became lovingly referred to in his day as “The Apostle of Rome.”

 

Sunday, April 5 – Palm Sunday

And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.  And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

St. Matthew 21:8-9

 

“Palm Sunday is all about our Savior and King entering into the earthly Jerusalem to suffer and die, so that we who suffer and die in this world might enter into God’s heavenly Jerusalem and live forever” 

Fr. Richard Jones

Tuesday, April 7 - And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing. And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee. But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marveled. - St. Mark 15:3-5

 

“Let us face our accusers, not by defending ourselves with words of our own wisdom, but in silence. For it is with our own words that we work our own will, but it is with silence that we become witnesses to the holy will of God” – Fr. Richard Jones

Thursday, April 9 

I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. - 1 Corinthians 11: 23-26

 

“I hunger for the bread of God, the flesh of Jesus Christ ...; I long to drink of his blood, the gift of unending love.”  - Ignatius of Antioch

 

Friday, April 10 – Good Friday

And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:  Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.  And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was Jesus Of Nazareth The King Of The Jews. - John 19:17-19

 

“We are therefore crucified with Christ. Whenever anything disagreeable or displeasing happens to you, remember Christ crucified and be silent.” - St. John of the Cross

 

Saturday, April 11 – Holy Saturday

 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

-  Ephesians 4:9-10

 

He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into Hell"  - The Apostle’s Creed

 

Responsive Psalm: Psalm 68:20  He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto GOD the Lord belong the issues from death.

Song: Let there be no song this Holy Week; but instead let us be silent and contemplate the Lord’s Passion and Death this week.
