HOLY CROSS CHURCH
Last Sunday we had the reflections on the Temptation in the Desert. We entered into the desert with Jesus Christ to be with him and to encounter him more closely and dearly. This week’s Gospel reading takes us to the mountain with Jesus along with Peter, James and John. Mountain in the Bible is always a place that brings us close to God and to know His ways. It is an ascending experience. Jesus takes us up to reveal His glory. Whenever we are in prayer, we have this mountain experience. There we desire to remain in that blessed state like the disciples who said: “it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three tents, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah”. But the Lord God also gave them a descending experience, leading them towards the mount of Calvary. As we rejoice to be with God in prayer in this season of Lent, we also ask our Lord for the grace that we may have the ‘descending’ experience, i.e., in our context, to have an empathy with the suffering people of the world, and to journey towards Good Friday so as to celebrate Easter in a worthy way.

All the Masses will be live-streamed: https://holy-cross-stream.click2stream.comPlease Note: with the new regulations, we will only be able to hold up to 40 people in the church. We shall follow a “First Come, First Served” rule. Since the obligation to participate the Holy Mass on Sundays is still suspended, please consider attending on weekdays with your family members so that those who cannot make it on weekdays can come during the weekends. Please wear a face mask, sanitise your hands and keep a sufficient distance always in the church. Kindly follow the guidance of Welcome Ministers. Looking forward to seeing you.
* Classes will be via Zoom now* From 24th April (after the Easter holidays) we hope to have regular classes at Hartley Hall.
