You are currently viewing REFLECTION: HOLY WEEK AT ST. MARY’S

This week’s reflection is from our Principal, Mrs. Esparza.

After nearly 40 days of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, we enter one of the most sacred weeks of the liturgical year.

Holy week is a journey through the heart of the Catholic faith; a reminder of the dramatic events that took place leading up to Jesus’s resurrection.

As we retrace the footsteps of Christ, we are encouraged to pray and reflect on Jesus’s sacrifice and victory over death. From palms, to the Passion, to the Paschal candle, this week has many visual reminders of His sacrificial love.

My prayer for all of us this Holy Week is that we are reminded of God’s boundless love and mercy and that we experience the joyous hope of His resurrection, together.
