Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday, when we celebrate Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem just days before his death on the cross. This package of stories by our partner Catholic News Service provides a reflective road map for our journey, which leads to Easter joy.
Palm Sunday proclaims an eternal message for a modern moment
At the start of Holy Week, Christians reflect on what it means to “come in the name of the Lord” by uniting themselves with Jesus’ death and resurrection.
Exhausting and intense, Holy Week leads us from sorrow to joy
From Palm Sunday to the Easter Vigil, the faithful seem to live at church while celebrating Christ’s passion. Yet the demanding liturgies renew us as they culminate in the glory of the Resurrection.
Jesus’ most important journey to Jerusalem
In the Gospels, Jesus travels Jerusalem many times, but St. Mark’s account describes only his most important visit — which culminated in his death and resurrection.
