Watch the video below as Cynthia Bourgeault shares how this beautiful volume of Holy Week Liturgies was born out of an environment of deep contemplative prayer and silence.
In 2010, Cynthia Bourgeault, with assistance from Ward Bauman and Darlene Franz, composed a series of liturgies for use during the Holy Week retreat at the Episcopal House of Prayers in Collegeville, MN. This collection of simple chants, readings, rituals, and prayers can be used by individuals and groups. The book is an excellent resource for contemplative liturgists or anyone looking to go deeper into the heart of the Holy Week experience. Recently republished and now available as a 80-page downloadable PDF.
Experience a Holy Week Based in Love Not Blame
Cynthia Bourgeault shares how this beautiful volume was born out of an environment of deep contemplative prayer and silence. The intention was to revise and reimagine the Holy Week Liturgies, which can feel heavy, ornate, and even blame driven, and instead lift the story of a Jesus who “made this offering voluntarily for the alchemical completion of love and the cosmic redemption.”
Go deeper into the heart of the Holy Week experience:
- manifest the theme of redemptive love and universal compassion
- explore a stronger Mary Magdalene influence
- work with the liturgies in small group retreat, individual study and reflection, or online Lectio Divina
