Let us pray (in silence) [that through this week we may share in Christ’s dying and rising]
Almighty everliving God, [or God of transcendence]
as an example of humility for the human race,
you sent our saviour to become incarnate
and to submit to the cross,
grant us the grace to learn from this patient suffering
and so to share in the resurrection;
through Jesus Christ
who is alive with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
This is the shared, ancient collect. Its history with a reflection is found here: Collect for Palm Sunday – Passion Sunday.
Remember, this coming Sunday (5 April 2020) is Passion Sunday with the Liturgy of the Palms, or Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord. This is the Sunday we read the Passion.

We live in the most extraordinary context as humanity responds to Covid 19 – most are going to have to draw on their deepest creativity to adapt our inherited tradition into these unprecedented times.
Here are resources for Holy Week:
If you have, or know of any, good resources for Holy Week, or if you have a cool adaptation for these challenging times – please let us know in the comments.
