Sometimes we have a bad habit of using “church talk” without explaining it. This can be a barrier for children, certainly, but also newcomers or adults who may to have the liturgical literacy we’re expecting! Here’s a short recap of what we mean by “Holy Week”.
We follow Jesus into the city of Jerusalem
We hear about Jesus' dinner with his friends before he is arrested
We watch Jesus' trial and execution
We wait, distraught, with Jesus' friends after he's laid in the tomb
We celebrate Jesus' surprising return to life!
