Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday, the day Jesus entered Jerusalem riding on a donkey. On this day, we celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into the city. It is a time to remember the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Holy Week is a time for great joy and celebration. It is a time to remember the love that Jesus showed for us and to renew our hope in his resurrection. The Paschal Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday is a time for our final preparation for the Resurrection.
On Easter Sunday, we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. On this day, we celebrate the triumph of life over death.
