In the season of Lent, we have entered into the forty-day fast that Jesus undertook in the wilderness. Through this dedicated period of self-examination, we have allowed God to further shape us into the image of Jesus. We have also aligned our hearts with the suffering of Jesus as we have moved ever closer toward Holy Week and the event of the crucifixion.
Now, while the whole of Lent has been a journey toward the cross with Jesus, Holy Week is where we experience this journey with the greatest intensity.
