Since I was out of town all weekend with my girlfriend and her family, I did not have much time to write for this week’s “Mondays with Mary.” My flight last night that was suppose to land at 10 p.m. did not get in till 12:15 a.m., so to say the least I am a bit tired. Then this morning I found out that since this is the Monday of Holy Week, the Feast of the Annunciation (Feast of the Theotokos in the East) is pushed to April 8. Next week I will focus on St. Francis de Sales on the Annunciation and then on April 8, I will give you some catechesis on the Annunciation itself as well.
Being that we have entered into Holy Week, I present to you four blog posts that I wrote last year for Holy Week (known as “The Great Week” in the East). There is a part 1, 2, and 3 for the Great Week and then a post on the Crucifixion of Our Lord. I encourage you to read them and share them with your family and friends during this week.
This is a “Great Week” and a “Holy Week.” We now enter into the Lord’s Passion with Him and pray with him on Holy Thursday in the Garden, at the Cross on Good Friday, in the tomb on Holy Saturday…and then REJOICE on Sunday for he has been resurrected from the dead.
Below are the posts for Holy Week –
