I used to think it was so strange to hear about "celebrating" Holy Week. I only thought of Holy Week in terms of sad reflection, until one day a few years ago, while attending a Lenten prayer service, a nun talked about Holy Week in terms of celebrating the grandeur and majesty of God's Great Plan for us, and in terms of celebrating the magnificence and radiance of Jesus' Sacrificial Triumph. And she talked about this week being a great celebration of God's Love for us, and she asked us as we contemplated the Great Sorrow of this week, we not lose sight of the Great Splendor.
Whether you follow Holy Week or not, I hope you all have a very Blessed week. And if you do follow Holy Week, I hope you are able to spend some time in prayer and in reflecting on and celebrating the solemn Scripture readings, and I hope this week leads you to the "Great Splendor" and a Joyous Easter!
I probably won't be posting again until after Easter, so I am going to wish you all a very HAPPY EASTER!
