Holy Week

The culmination of the Year of Grace in the Church begins this week, as believers remember the passion, death, and resurrection of Christ. Here at mwbh, we depart from some of the usual nonsense -- not all of it, mind you; just enough to keep us in line -- to join in that remembrance. In this clip, we look to the East, as Archbishop Vladiko Lazar speaks to us of how Eastern Christians celebrate what they know as "Great Week."

Yesterday was Palm Sunday, when we commemorated the entry of Christ into Jerusalem. There were photographs taken at the Blessing of Palms, Procession, and Solemn High Mass, at St John the Beloved in McLean, Virginia. We hope to have them soon. Very soon. (Somebody'd better get crackin'...)
