Easter Triduum 2021
I pray that you will be reflective and rejoyce at the comming Easter celebration.
Our virtue this week is RELENTLESSNESS – The strength to continue striving for your goal when the going gets tough. Every day is an opportunity to be RELENTLESS … by hustling, constantly striving to improve, never giving up, fighting off feelings of laziness and fatigue. A RELENTLESS attitude is a championship attitude.
Lord, the virtue of being RELENTLESS is very important for every aspect of our lives. You kept going even when things got impossibly hard for You. Give us the strength to never quit on You, to never quit on our friends, our teammates, to never quit on ourselves … especially when it gets hard, especially when we’re exhausted.
Let’s be RELENTLESS today by concentrating harder when we’re really tired
Thank you for never quitting on us, Lord. You were on the Cross for three long hours. People made fun of You, taunted You, tempted You to come down from the Cross but You were RELENTLESS. We want to be like You, Lord. In Your Name we pray. Amen
2 Corinthians 11: 23-27
Are they servants of Christ?–I speak as if insane–I more so; in far more labors, in far more imprisonments, beaten times without number, often in danger of death. Five times I received from the Jews thirty-nine lashes. Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, a night and a day I have spent in the deep. I have been on frequent journeys, in dangers from rivers, dangers from robbers, dangers from my countrymen, dangers from the Gentiles, dangers in the city, dangers in the wilderness, dangers on the sea, dangers among false brethren; I have been in labor and hardship, through many sleepless nights, in hunger and thirst, often without food, in cold and exposure.

LAXITY – The weakness of lacking the rigor to pursue goals.
Laxity entices us to give up on our goals when we encounters difficulties and adversity.
