Holy Week and Easter Preparation
Hosanna! Blessings on him who comes in the name of Lord!
The events we recall today might almost seem like a grand finale, if we did not know that the most significant part of Christs life – his suffering and death – are still to be recalled by the Church during this week ahead. Today we begin to relive this greatest mystery of all, the mystery of suffering, death and resurrection. When the Church celebrates Holy Week, she is not simply dramatising something that happened many years ago. Jesus Christ is still alive. That is fact. And the truth we celebrate this week is the invitation to share in his suffering which will become our glory.
