The two weeks’ of online prayer for the world is called Jerusalem Journey as we follow the gospel account of Jesus in Jerusalem during Holy Week and then spend Easter Week with our Risen Lord.
Rebecca Bretherton, co-ordinator of the Diocesan Commission for Evangelisation, explains: “In the midst of everyday life, the Jerusalem Journey invites people to reflect on the message of Jesus’ Passion, Death and Resurrection and to join prayers for our world.
“The online Jerusalem Journey follows the success of our online Advent Posada Journey last December. We know that the online Advent Posada Journey reached people who wouldn’t normally follow diocesan social media and the prayers spread outside East Anglia.
“We hope that the simple online Jerusalem Journey posts, with a daily prayer linked to the events of Holy Week and Easter, will inspire us to follow Jesus more closely and that they will reach those who have yet to encounter Jesus. And do share them with others.
“A prayerful journey with Jesus throughout Holy Week will lead us to the gifts of hope and joy when we celebrate Easter together,” said Rebecca.
