Holy Week, which culminates in the celebration of Easter, is the most sacred time of our Liturgical Year. During Holy Week we remember and have re-presented for us Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the institution of the Eucharist, the Passion and Death of Jesus and the fulfillment of God’s plan for us in the Resurrection of Jesus.
Solemn and Sacred, the celebrations of Holy Week remind us of God’s mercy and His fidelity to His promise of redemption. We are the beneficiaries of God’s compassionate love. All of the events that we celebrate during Holy Week are meant to remind us that Jesus died and rose for our sake. He is the instrument that God has chosen to bring salvation to each of us.
May we celebrate Holy Week and Easter with reverence and gratitude for the wonderful gifts that God showers upon us. May God and the Risen Lord bless you and all whom you love.
