Blessed Holy Week

Blessed Holy Week to you all.

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.
Silence is kept.

If I have wounded any soul today,
If to the weak I have refused my strength,
If in rebellion I have strayed away,
Dear Lord forgive me.

If I have spoken words of cruelty
If I have left some suffering unrelieved
Condemn not my insensitivity,
Dear Lord forgive me.

If I have insisted on a peaceful life
Far from the struggles the Gospel brings
When you prefer to guide me to the strife,
Dear Lord forgive me.

Forgive the sins I have confessed to Thee;
Forgive the secret sins I do not see;
O Guide me, love me, and my keeper be,
Dear Lord forgive me.

Receive O Lord, the ardent word of prayer,
And free me from temptation’s subtle snare
With tender patience lead me to your care.
Dear Lord forgive me.
