March 31: To Lament is to Love Holy Week Prayer Service

To Lament is to Love
A Virtual Holy Week Prayer Service
Date: Wednesday, March 31
Time: 9 – 9:30 a.m.

The Division of Mission and Ministry invites you to a virtual prayer service of lamentation for the Creighton community during Holy Week amidst so much of our world’s brokenness. The Catechism of the Catholic Church describes lament as a form of “groaning.” (cf. #2630) All people carry personal and communal heartaches. Let us come together in our deep sorrow over the recent mass shootings, the pandemic, racism, and other difficult and challenging dynamics of our human lives.

Prayers of lament remind us of our human vulnerability, but they are prayers of faith and hope, not despair. While lament expresses our deep frustration in a painful situation, it also expresses our trust in the God, incarnate in Jesus Christ, who is already at work in the world, healing what needs to be healed and redeeming what needs to be redeemed.
