It is all a never-ending cycle of busyness that becomes the motivating condition of our lives - if we let it.
But Jesus himself has asked us to do this one thing for him this most Holy Week of the year. To stay for a while in the garden and just keep watch with him. He has taken on the pain and sorrow that fills our lives and even taken the burden of our busyness. He just asks us to slow-it-down for one hour. One hour.
One hour at Holy Thursday Mass to pray with him and to dine with him at the table of His last supper.
One hour to experience the final steps of his agony and passion and to humble ourselves to venerate the Cross on Good Friday.
One glorious hour to rejoice and celebrate at Easter Mass that he has concurred death, has risen and truly lives today and for all of time.
Just one hour.
