Reflecting On The Holy Week.

         Reflecting on Holy Week:

The Journey to the Cross


     As we have stepped into the Holy Week let us remember the sacrifice that was done just for us by our Savior Jesus. All around the world Christians take time to reflect on the profound journey of Jesus Christ to the cross and the ultimate sacrifice he made for humanity’s salvation. This sacred period, beginning with Palm Sunday and culminating in Easter Sunday, holds deep significance in the Christian faith. It’s a time for believers to meditate on the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and to draw strength and inspiration from his example of love and sacrifice.

The Journey Begins: Palm Sunday

Holy Week commences with Palm Sunday, commemorating Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. The crowds waved palm branches and shouted “Hosanna!” as Jesus rode into the city on a donkey, fulfilling prophecy (Matthew 21:1-11). This moment marks the beginning of the final week of Jesus’ earthly ministry, leading up to his crucifixion and resurrection.

The Last Supper: Maundy Thursday

    Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper, where Jesus shared the Passover meal with his disciples. During this intimate gathering, Jesus instituted the sacrament of communion, symbolizing his body and blood given for the forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26:17-30). He also washed the feet of his disciples, demonstrating humility and service (John 13:1-17).

The Agony in the Garden: Good Friday


   Good Friday marks the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus agonized in prayer, surrendering to the Father’s will despite the intense suffering he knew he would endure (Matthew 26:36-46). He was betrayed by Judas, arrested, and subjected to a mock trial before being crucified on a cross, bearing the weight of humanity’s sin upon his shoulders (Matthew 27:27-56).

The Resurrection: Easter Sunday


    Easter Sunday celebrates the glorious resurrection of Jesus Christ. On the third day after his crucifixion, Jesus triumphantly rose from the dead, defeating sin and death once and for all (Matthew 28:1-10). His resurrection brings hope and new life to all who believe in him, demonstrating God’s power to overcome even the darkest of circumstances.
