April 14 - Reflections and Sermon

To mark the Sacred Triduum we have suspended our refectory reading of Exodus: The Book of Redemption by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks. For Good Friday and Holy Saturday we are reading a Good Friday reflection by Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI followed by St. Bernard’s sermon for Wednesday in Holy Week titled “Of The Lord’s Passion.”
