PASSIONTIDE

The Purple Veils covering many statues and holy pictures in church recall this time of quiet prayer as we approach the great events of our redemption in Holy Week: ‘God so loved the world that He gave up his only Son’ (Gospel of St John).  Or we read again, ‘Now sentence is being passed on this world; now the prince of this world is to be overthrown.  And when I am lifted up from the earth, I shall draw all men to myself’.
