Holy Week looks forward to Easter Sunday

Holy Week, beginning with Palm Sunday today and ending with Easter next Sunday, is the most sacred time for Christians. They celebrate Jesus’ last week: riding triumphantly into Jerusalem, washing the feet of his disciples at the Last Supper, being crucified on a cross and his resurrection. It signifies the foundational truth of their faith: That Jesus broke the bonds of death and opened the way into heaven.
