Ashes, palms and tapers by ProQuest


Having made our trek through the 40 days of Lent, we arrive at Holy Week. With the people who welcomed Jesus in Jerusalem, we greet him as our king though we know "his crown is thorns and his throne a cross" (p. 297, BAS). The palm branch we receive on that day is a sign that Christ's victory over sin and death comes through his self-offering on the cross. The liturgies for Holy Week draw us into the upper room, to Gethsemane, the judgment hall, to a hill called Calvary, and to the garden. Day by day, hour by hour, we are drawn closer to Christ in his passion and his death.
