Holy Week and Easter

The Kairos Easter message has been released by our partners and friends in Palestine: ‘Jesus is not only in the scriptures. He is in your guts, hearts, and eyes’.

Pax Christi executive member, Paul McGowan, offers us a creative reflection on the role of Simon of Cyrene.

At this strange time, we look forward to marking the events of Holy Week and celebrating Easter, as best we can. We keep in our thoughts and prayers, Pax Christi members and their families, as well as our partners around the world – and especially in Palestine. We join with UN Secretary- General António Guterres in his call for a global ceasefire to allow us all to focus on saving lives during this time of pandemic.

Pope Francis reminds us that on looking at the cross, ‘There we see God’s reply. Violence is not answered with violence. Death is not answered with the language of death.’
