The last week of Lent is known as Holy Week. Find out about the days which make up Holy Week, Palm Sunday, Maunday Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Palm Sunday marks the start of Holy Week. It reminds Christians of the journey Jesus made into Jerusalem, on a donkey, to celebrate the Jewish festival of Passover (Pesach). Jesus chose a donkey to show that he had come in peace. Many people welcomed Jesus by shouting, waving palm branches and throwing branches down in the path of the donkey. They hoped that Jesus was the Saviour who the Bible had promised.

Start by marking Orthodox Lent, Holy Week and Easter as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. Still, the book is at least something to familiarise Westerners with the Orthodox calendar. As a catechumen in the Orthodox Church, I was in need of a book to accompany me through my first Lent, Holy Week, and Eastern in the Church, and Wybrew's work was a good aid. Those looking for a more substantial explanation of Orthodox liturgics for Anglicans are advised to pick up Wybrew's The Orthodox Liturgy as well.

Holy Week is when the church remembers the last week of Jesus' life and is the most intense week of the year for Christians. On Palm Sunday Jesus arrived in Jerusalem to crowds and cheers. His triumphant entry into Jerusalem has been celebrated on the Sunday before Easter since the first centuries of Christianity. The Easter Vigil is the first service of Easter and begins sometime on the evening of Holy Saturday (the day before Easter Day). It begins with a symbolic expectant waiting (usually outdoors around a fire) for the resurrection of Jesus on Easter morning, and this is represented visually by a large Easter candle, which is lit from the fire and brought into a darkened church. This depiction of new life and light represents Jesus’ resurrection on the first Easter morning.

Easter is fast-approaching, and leading up to the springtime holiday is Holy Week, which, in Roman Catholic tradition, is the last week of Lent, taking place right before Easter (which falls on Sunday, April 20th this year). To kick off the week, Guatemalans decorate their streets and homes with palm fronds on Palm Sunday, and the celebration continues through Good Friday.
