HOLY WEEK.
Holy Week, with Good Friday for its Friday, commemorates the sufferings and death of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Year by tear the custom of making Good Friday a holiday instead of a holy day dying out. Dear to the Christian should be the memory of his saviour’s death. If the servant loves his master he will keep this day holy. The observance of Good Friday is but natural and proper; but .i day of this week claims from us a serious consideration, as it sets forth each step of the way of sorrow, which led to the Cross and Grave, and through these to the joyful Resurrection. The daily services will be welcome to all who wish to mourn with Christ. Just at this time sorrow and bereavement have visited some families; many more suffer from lack of work and such like trials it will be a comfort to these to take their cross and follow Christ in prayer and meditation.

FLOWERING SUNDAY.
Flowering Sunday is a bright opening to a week of sorrow. To the Christian Easter Day throws its light before; the grave ever blossoms, and its sad collections are swallowed up in joy. As Palm Sunday falls late this year flowers will probably be in fuller bloom, and the churchyard gay and cheerful aspect. Begin to deck the graves early in the week that the Sunday may be reserved, not for work, but for worship. Come not only to see the flowers, but to join in the service.
To enter a churchyard at the hour of prayer, without entering the church is like knocking at a neighbour’s door and going off without paying him a call.
