Sunday Reflection

Why Holy Week?

We connect the word holy with people of great faith, with prayer, maybe good deeds or penances. This week we come face to face with our faith- to trust in the Lord despite the darkness of the hour. Peter forgot that in the courtyard when he denied Jesus three time, but recovered his faith in the morning. Judas forgot it altogether and consigned himself to destruction. To have faith is to trust that all things will serve God, even the suffering we must endure, and even the injustice and the evil we see and experience. The holy in Holy Week assures us of the human and divine love that our Lord has for each of us.
