This Sunday we move in to Passiontide.

 

Passiontide (in the Christian Liturgical Calendar) is the name given to the last two weeks of Lent, beginning on the fifth Sunday of Lent, long celebrated as Passion Sunday and ending on Holy Saturday.

Passiontide is observed in many provinces of the Anglican Communion for example in the Church of England. In the Common Worship liturgy, material proper to Passiontide is used from Evening Prayer on the Eve of the Fifth Sunday of Lent to the evening of Easter Eve. Such "proper material" includes prefaces to the Eucharistic Prayer, special orders for Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer, and seasonal material for Night Prayer and Prayer During the Day. Although the Sarum Use used crimson as the liturgical colour for the whole of Passiontide, Common Worship recommends continuing in purple (or Lenten array) throughout the fifth week of Lent, changing to red for Holy Week.

MAUNDY THURSDAY IN THE CATHEDRAL:  The Chrism Eucharist. A list to sign if you wish to go with us is at the rear of Church

We live in a society that loves to make rash judgements. – “so and so deserved that” – “serves them right!” etc. Jesus reminds us in this Sunday’s Gospel not to make rash judgements.. When people say things like “their sin has found that out” Jesus simply reminds us that all of us need a better conscience than we have. Just like the parable of the fig tree that he goes on to quote, we are all called to be fruitful Christians, with lives that show a little of God’s love and glory. Perhaps the events in Ukraine should remind us all that ultimately all of us are in need of God’s mercy
