‘Who cannot die, yet cannot choose but die’: Entering the Mystery of Christ for Holy Week A talk exploring the mysteries of faith in preparation for Holy Week.
St Albans Cathedral, St Albans, UK

19:30 to 21:00 Thu Mar 19th

Holy Week is the high point of the church calendar, when we are invited vividly into the contemplation of the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ.

And yet, it can also be a perplexing season, as we are confronted with stories rife with paradox and mystery. The Orthodox theologian Andrew Louth says that ‘the main concern of theology is not so much to elucidate anything, as to prevent us, the Church, from dissolving the mystery that lies at the heart of the faith—dissolving it, or missing it altogether, by failing truly to engage with it.’ In this spirit, we will discuss key elements of classical Christology in order to deepen our participation in, and contemplation of, the mystery of Christ.
