Note from The Bell-Wether-The Green Wood
Posted by Supertradmum
For only the second time in my adult life, I missed Holy Thursday Mass. However, I am going into a silent retreat tonight which will end Easter morning. Not the same as being with my people, but....
When I ponder on the reasons why I could not get to church today, one thing stuck in my mind.
As usual, I experience something harsh before my fellow brothers and sisters in order to warn them.
In the not too distant future, many of us, perhaps the majority, may not have access to the Triduum. If you do now, take advantage of this great grace.
Many enemies both outside and inside the Church bear upon our daily lives, but this situation will come to a crisis soon.
No priests, or only disobedient ones, no bishops, or only disobedient ones, no sacraments...and so on, will be the norm in many dioceses.
So, tonight, as I begin a time of solitary prayer, I am reminded of the recusants in my beloved England, who did not have the Mass or sacraments except on rare occasions.
Pray for yourselves...Christ's warning to the Women of Jerusalem echo tonight. The Jews and Romans used the green wood to fashion Jesus' Cross...when things are going well, this is how some people act. What will happen in times of great tribulation?
