Wednesday of the Holy Week
Ant. 2 of Evening Prayer (Vespers)
“He took all our sins upon himself and asked forgiveness for our offenses”
Be friends with one another, and kind, forgiving each other as readily as God forgave you in Christ. Try, then, to imitate God, as children of his that he loves, and follow Christ by loving as he loved you, giving himself up in our place as a fragrant offering and a sacrifice to God.
Oh Lord our God, grant us the grace to open our hearts to the mystery of your sacred passion, death and resurrection as we enter into the heart of the Easter Triduum. Change our stony hearts into a heart of flesh. Transform us into the very person of Christ your Son.
