1. The Triduum
Need I say more? These 3 days - Holy Thursday, Good Friday & Holy Saturday - are the 3 most important days of the church year. Through liturgy, we experience the death and resurrection of Jesus. Inspiring, holy, moving. Words are not enough. They are the highlight of my year.
2. Holy Week is, well, holy.
This week is special. This week is important. It is not business as usual. Holy Week brings my prayer life, my relationship with God, more front and center. My prayers are different. My priorities are different. It is Holy Week.
3. The end of Lent and the beginning of Easter.
Holy Week is the time I look back at Lent and I look at my life and check out my heart. Did I grow during Lent? Did I follow my initial plan for Lent? Did my prayer life change? Did my prayer life grow? Did I now remember to put God first in my life? Did I love my neighbor?
May you all have a blessed Holy Week.
