Holy Week

Holy Week is upon us again. Catholics and many Christians celebrate the passion, death and resurrection of the Lord in this Holy Week.

The Last Supper of the Lord is celebrated on Holy Thursday where Jesus asked his followers to break the bread and share the wine in memory of him. He also taught us in this meal to wash each other’s feet as a sign of our service to our neighbours. To be a follower of Jesus is to be of service to their neighbours.

The passion and death of our Lord is remembered and celebrated on Good Friday. This is the day when the Lord gave his life on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins. This is the day the sinful humanity is reconciled with the forgiving God.

The  Resurrection  of  the  Lord  is celebrated  as  vigil  on  the  night  of  Holy  Saturday,  or  in  the  morning on  Easter  Sunday.  Jesus  offers  us  a new  life  in  him  through  his  rising from the dead. 

The  Catholic  Church  invites  all  the faithful  in  this  time  of  the  year  to receive  the  sacrament  of  Reconciliation  and  the  Holy Communion. 

It  is  a  time  to  come  and  reconcile  with  the Lord and to get strengthened by his Body and Blood.

May you all be graced by the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
