Holy Week Art

Our friend Hana, Ordinand at St Mark's Church, Saltney has created wonderful pieces of art to share with you each day as we journey through Holy Week together.

Speaking of why she chose to use her hands within the images, Hana said

"I decided to use my hands to symbolise the journey of Holy Week because these stories in scripture have become mine and the story of many others. We spend this week remembering a time in history that is pivotal to the Christian faith and how we live out our lives today.".
 

Easter Sunday


Matthew 28:1-10 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

The Resurrection of Jesus

28 After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. 2 And suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. 4 For fear of him the guards shook and became like dead men. 5 But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. 6 He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he[a] lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has been raised from the dead,[b] and indeed he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him.’ This is my message for you.” 8 So they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 Suddenly Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came to him, took hold of his feet, and worshipped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
 

God of glory,

 

by the raising of your Son

you have broken the chains of death and hell:

fill your Church with faith and hope;

for a new day has dawned

and the way to life stands open

in our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Amen
 

He is risen indeed. Alleluia!
