This coming Sunday is Palm Sunday! During Holy Week, we will live the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I remember wondering at all the parts of Holy Week in my childhood, why we did this, or what was the meaning of that. My parents gave me simple answers, saying we could find some scripture passages in connection with every celebration of the Holy Week.
Jesus invites the people around him today to remain in his Word. His mission to bring the Will of the Father down to earth is still speaking to us today, inviting us to take part in all the glories of the Holy Week ahead.
What about Holy Week is special to you?
Let our families truly experience the Word of God today.
