Resources for Lent 5

Reflections based on collect/opening prayer:

Fifth Sunday in Lent March 21 from the collect/opening prayer
Fifth Sunday in Lent March 21 from the collect/opening prayer (BCP TEC)

Looking forward:

Palm Sunday/ Passion Sunday
Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday)
Good Friday

Some people call Lent 5 “Passion Sunday” – I prefer to follow contemporary liturgical calendar renewal and call Palm Sunday “Passion Sunday” as that Sunday is when the passion is read and we begin the intense path of the passion. There seems no reason to start “Passiontide” now.

This Sunday, Lent 5, has a different gospel reading for Roman Catholics (John 8:1-11) than others using RCL (John 12:1-11)

What hymns, prayers, ideas, resources, for Sunday or Lent generally do you want to share in the comments?

  1. Fr Bosco, was Lent 5 ever the first Sunday that one of the passions was read? I haven’t been able to find a reason for Lent 5 being called Passion Sunday. Most websites/books I have consulted merely note that on Palm Sunday a passion is read.
