For Christians, the week preceding Easter is known as Holy Week. It begins on Palm Sunday (March 25th) and is traditionally a week of somber reflection on the events preceding Jesus’ death: his triumphant entry into Jerusalem; his betrayal by Judas; his Last Supper with his twelve apostles; his arrest, crucifixion and death; and his burial in a tomb.
Though today the word “passion” has romantic connotations, it was originally derived from the Latin word passio, meaning suffering. In religious contexts, the Passion (often capitalized) refers to the torture, crucifixion, and death of Jesus.
Christians observe Good Friday as the day Jesus was crucified and died. It is the most somber day on the Christian calendar.
My hope and prayer is that you will listen to Songs of the Cross as you prepare your heart and spirit for Holy Week and especially on Good Friday. Songs of the Cross can be streamed on Spotify. (Click on link above)
God Bless You All!
