Beautiful Holy Week. . . EASTER SUNDAY. . . “He is beautiful in heaven, beautiful on earth; beautiful in the womb, beautiful in his parent’s arms, beautiful in his miracles, beautiful in inviting to life, beautiful in not worrying about death, beautiful in giving his life and beautiful in taking it up again; he is beautiful on the cross, beautiful in the tomb, beautiful in heaven. Listen to the song with understanding, and let not the weakness of the flesh distract your eyes from the splendor of his
beauty.”
-St. Augustine

Beautiful Holy Week. . . HOLY THURSDAY. . .
The Last Supper, by Rainer Maria Rilke "They are assembled, astounded, bewildered, Round Him who, like a sage centered at last withdraws from those to whom He once belonged & flows beyond them as some foreigner. The former solitude comes over Him which raised Him to perform His profound acts; Again He’ll wander in the olive grove, And those who love Him will now run from Him.
He summons them to the final meal & (as a shot shoos birds from sheaves) He shoos their hands from bread with His word; they mutter up to him; They lap about the table anxiously searching for some way out. But He, Like an evening hour, is everywhere.* Pope Benedict said, “When the Lord of the world comes and undertakes the slave’s task of foot-washing—which is an illustration of the way he washes
our feet all through our lives—we have a totally different picture. God doesn’t want to trample on us, but kneels down before us so as to exalt us. The mystery of the greatness of God is seen precisely
in the fact that he can be small...” The greatness of God is seen in His smallness. What does this mean? How can we see this greatness, live the Lord’s small greatness? We learn to look closely, wonder like children, become a humble servant, paying attention to the smallest; the forsaken and the lonely. We learn to love humbly and as we become smaller, our hearts become greater and we see Christ face to face as we wash feet too. The mystery is unfolding all around us when we see with the eyes of faith. There is no greater love, no more beautiful virtue, than learning to love as Christ loved, to become a humble servant to all.

What is our picture of Christ? In what small
and humble things do we see the mystery of the greatness of God? **Atwan, Robert, George Dardess, Peggy Rosenthal, Editors.

Beautiful Holy Week. . . GOOD FRIDAY. . .
Christ appears defeated, broken, bereft of beauty. Yet He is, precisely in the suffering of the Cross, the supreme manifestation of beauty and love. God’s being, God’s form, glory and beauty are most perfectly
manifested in the self-emptying of the suffering form of Christ. Without His Cross, God could not convey the depth of His love, or the light of his salvation.* Jesus is the perfect reflection of the Father’s being.
At every moment He comes from the Father, in every action He is going back to the Father. No other human form in history has relected His humanity through such complete receptivity to the divinity. *Hans Urs von Baltahsar, The Glory of the Lord vol. 1, p. 354.

momma birds Bible. . . "Jesus Christ shows us how the truth of love can transform even the dark mystery of death into the radiating light of the Resurrection. Here the splendor of God's glory surpasses all worldly beauty." -John Navone, Towards a Theology of Beauty, p. 58

Fifth Saturday of Beautiful Lent. . . Prayer. . .
God, take me by Your hand, I shall follow You dutifully,
and not resist too much. I shall evade none of the tem-
pests life has in store for me; I shall try to face it all as
best I can. But now and then grant me a short respite.
I shall never again assume, in my innocence, that any
peace that comes my way will be eternal. I shall accept all
the inevitable turmoil and struggle. I delight in warmth
and security, but I shall not rebel if I have to suffer cold,
should You so decree. I shall follow wherever Your hand
leads me and shall try not to be afraid. I shall try to
spread some of my warmth, of my genuine love for others,
wherever I go.  Amen” *
*Prayer of Etty Hillesum
