I posted a while back about learning to be present to the present.
I find this to be one of the biggest temptations for me as Holy Week begins.
I have so many new dreams and hopes about the future, that I have to struggle to refocus myself to Holy Week.
Of course it is a challenge as I am have to change gears, do all the phone calls and research about job and financial related things. With EI (unemployment insurance as I believe it is called in the States) I should be fine financially, esp. if I live responsibly.
Each year the liturgical year impacts me in new ways - this year I am more aware of the narrative continuity... Lazarus Saturday, to Palm Sunday, to Holy Week beginning.
I am aware of many people's struggles - school, job and health. May God have mercy on us and protect us. May He bring us to Pasca and to His joy!
