Today we begin Holy Week. It is called “holy” because Christians throughout the world remember and celebrate the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ and it is in these life-changing events that we enter into a life of holiness. I encourage all of you to participate in the liturgies of Holy Week: Palm Sunday, Tenebrae, the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, the Good Friday liturgies, the Easter Vigil, and Easter Sunday Masses. By entering into the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus (the Paschal Mysteries), we encounter sacramentally the Lord who loved us so much that he died for our sins and rose from the dead to open the gates of heaven to those who believe in him. This is my favorite time of the liturgical year (even a little more than Christmas) because there is such richness and intensity during this holiest week of the year. Join us this week as we celebrate the mystery of our Faith!
