Each year, Christians throughout the world celebrate Holy Week, the most significant period in the Christian calendar. Holy Week commemorates the last week of the life of Jesus Christ, beginning with Palm Sunday, when Christ rode into Jerusalem triumphantly, continuing to Good Friday, commemorating his crucifixion and death, and concluding with Easter Sunday in remembrance of his glorious resurrection from the tomb.
The following links take you to essays I have written during Holy Weeks in years past. I hope that they will make this beautiful observance more meaningful to you, and that you will feel in some measure the love I have for my Savior, whose life, death, and resurrection make possible my great joy.
