Holy Week recalls the events of our Lord’s suffering and death. We recall his triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, his giving of the commandments on Maundy Thursday, his crucifixion and burial on Good Friday, and the solemn vigil of Saturday night before Easter Sunday.
TODAY’S THEME One of YouWill Betray Me, John 13.21-32
Throughout our Lord’s ministry, Jesus had testified that he would be betrayed by one of his very own disciples. At the Table of the Passover, through a sign of a dipped morsel, Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, was identified to be the one who would betray him. That dark and dreadful night, our Lord would be betrayed by one of his very own, and would be victim to the disloyalty of one of his inner circle of followers – the cruelest betrayal of all.

Invocation: Our Prayer of Acclamation Remember our weakness, O Lord acquainted with sorrows and grief, and grant us grace to neither shrink back, cower, nor betray you, but rather, to always by your grace and strength stand our ground with you and for you, in defense of your Gospel and truth. For Christ’s sake, amen.
