"It is still worth it!" We keep hearing over and over on our FaceTime and Zoom calls, our text and emails, and our shouts across a parking lot how much everyone is grieving the loss of Holy Week and Easter liturgies, and the temptation to ask if celebrating is pointless when we're unable to gather our loved ones. Easter is not cancelled! Jesus is still dying...and rising! It's still worth it! That's the answer to everyone struggling and questioning whether or not to put in the "work" to celebrate it. But wait - what if it weren't extra work to live it out? Here are 3 great ways to literally push your emotions to "get in the mood". We know there are a lot of resources out there. However, if you're as weary as we are right now, you may just want to rest in these three simplified ways of living Easter. Here are the links to the 3 ways to walk alongside Jesus in his passion and death, and uncover Easter joy this weekend.

1) Watch The Chosen on YouTube!

2) Sign up for Erica Tighe of Be A Heart's Holy Week/Easter At Home emails!

3) Tune in to Word on Fire Holy Week & Easter ceremonies, and/or check your parish website

1) Watch The Chosen on YouTube!

Binge Jesus! The Chosen is a series on the life and miracles of Jesus, through the eyes of his chosen ones, his followers and loved ones, just like you and me. One warning - Episode 1, "Blood & Demons" has mature content on the past life and an exorcism of Saint Mary Magdalene. It's not graphic, but it may frighten younger viewers, so screen this episode first if you're watching as a family. The episodes are available right now for "Global Livestream", including a director's commentary of before/after, and enclosed in this video is the entire full episode (about 55 min per episode). If you prefer to watch without commentary, you can fast forward/skip, however you can also watch for free via their app: www.TheChosen.tv/app Here are the direct links to The Chosen series.
