5th April - Just 15 Minutes

We are now about to enter Holy Week. As the Church comes to celebrate and remember this great act of love of God. We are also invited to join with the Church to reflect, and pray as one. We pray that these 15 minute reflections will help you to continue this journey to calvary and to the empty tomb.

      • Find a suitable place where you can sit and be calm. 
        • Close your eyes for a few moments and listen to the sounds surrounding you, be aware of your posture and make yourself present to enter into a moment of intimacy with Jesus.


      • Make the sign of the cross and remain for a few more moments in silence. TIP: If it helps you to concentrate and to bring yourself before Jesus in prayer, play a song or two of praise. If you do not have any specific song, we suggest this song

Matthew 21:6-10


The disciples went and did as Jesus had ordered them. They brought the ass and the colt and laid their cloaks over them, and he sat upon them. The very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and strewed them on the road. The crowds preceding him and those following kept crying out and saying:


“Hosanna to the Son of David;

blessed is the he who comes in the name of the Lord;

hosanna in the highest.”


And when he entered Jerusalem the whole city was shaken and asked, “Who is this?” And the crowds replied, “This is Jesus the prophet, from Nazareth in Galilee.”

          • “Who is this?”
            • Who is this man Jesus we are reading about today? Why is he different? Why does he come riding in a donkey, and walking towards his death? What do I feel as I use my imagination to picture this passage? 
            • Jesus, you love me and all humanity. You freely gave yourself to be crucified for the atonement of my sins. Jesus, help me enter this week with an open heart to meditate deeply on your passion, death and your resurrection.
          • Allow a moment of silence and try to listen to what God wants to tell you today. We suggest using a notebook to write some short points. 
          • Ask Mary to guide you to her son Jesus and intercede for others. Recite a Hail Mary. 
            • What are the requests I wish to bring to God through Mary? For whom will I intercede?
          • Close this moment of prayer by thanking God for this moment of intimacy together. 
            • Grant us Jesus, to journey with you throughout this Holy Week, that we can meditate this great mystery of love. 
          • Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.   – Make the sign of the cross. 

The Rosary will be prayed every day at 5:30pm and live-streamed on TVM2, Newsbook & Church.mt, from the Curia’s chapel. We encourage you all to join us in this prayer.
