Understanding the meaning of Holy Week

This week marks what can be said as the saddest, and at same time, the greatest moment in Christianity. During Holy Week we remember and reflect on the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Did you know that the Lenten Season begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Thursday evening? On the evening of Holy Thursday, the "Triduum", the great three days of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday, occur leading to Easter Sunday.

I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to have a better understanding of the meaning of Holy Week from a talk given by Bro. Michael Angelo Lobrin (read more about him here). And because I enjoyed his talk so much (he's such a funny guy, you'll see), I want to share this with you, too. Here is his talk given on April 10, 2011 at The Feast Alabang (just scroll towards the middle part of the video for the portion of Bro. Michael's talk). His songs are very nice, too, and his witty remarks made the talk even more enjoyable (I assure you, you won't be bored!).

So, here's wishing you all a blessed Holy Week, and may we all rejoice in the Lord's Resurrection on Easter Sunday! God bless us all!
