In the longer version of the Passion, we read about Jesus being betrayed. How have we betrayed ourselves, others and Jesus? Have we been panic buying? Have we been endangering others by going out instead of staying home? Have we given up caring for the elderly who are in isolation? Have we abandoned worshipping with others despite the existence of many online options? As the writer GK Chesterton prayed, Smite us and save us all.
- Pray that as we shout Hosanna (literally, Save [us] now) today, we may be forgiven our many betrayals.
- Give thanks for the work and witness of the Anglican Church of Melanesia.
