“Holy Week, which for Christians is the most important week of the year, gives us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the central events of the Redemption, to relieve the Paschal Mystery, the great Mystery of faith. . . May divine grace open our hearts to an understanding of the invaluable gift of salvation, obtained for us by Christ’s sacrifice.” (Pope Benedict, General Audience, April 8, 2009)



Watch a video reflection on the day’s readings. 


Pray for the catechumens in your community today who are waiting to be baptized into the Church on Holy Saturday. 


Take time to plan ahead to ensure that you and your family can attend Mass on Holy Thursday, services on Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil on Saturday.
