Prelude to Holy Week

With Holy Week almost upon us, the Church enters into the most sacred liturgical time of the year. A certain anticipation hangs in the air. A sacred silence descends on faithful hearts.
The week of our salvation! We will tread on holy ground this week, from Palm Sunday to the Last Supper, Calvary and Easter. These are the most sacred days, when grace flows freely. The blood of Christ, shed on the cross, washes away the sins of the whole world. I am happy to claim my place among the ranks of sinners, for:
"The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." (1 Tim 1:15).
