Catholics across the Archdicoese of Chicago participated in a variety of liturgies and devotions between Palm Sunday and the Easter Vigil.
Holy Week invites us to walk through the sufferings of Christ. Christ said very little when he was betrayed. He did not attempt to defend himself, but “humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross” (Phil 2:8).
Holy Week is the busiest week in the church’s liturgical calendar. It starts with Palm Sunday and concludes with the Triduum — Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, Good Friday service of the Lord’s Passion and the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday.
