Holy Week begins this weekend with Palm Sunday and continues with Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. As we approach Holy Week, we are confronted with the mystery and the magnitude of Christ’s Passion and Death. Our instinct may be to shy away from it…all the suffering and sorrow and pain….but it is only through the Cross that the Resurrection is possible. We will celebrate some of the most profound liturgies of our church year this week, and they are filled with opportunities to dive deep into prayer, grow closer to Christ, and prepare your heart for Easter.
