Holy Week is about more than a reflection of events that occurred so very long ago. The events of this week is about NOW. It is about being present to the suffering and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. This week unites our sufferings with His, our death with His, and our life with His. The events of today in Belgium can strike us so hard, but we often forget that on this day, and every day, many suffer and die due to repression and hate.
The message of this week is not how hate prevails, but to the contrary, how LOVE rises above it all.
