3 Sunday March 25, 2018 Our memorial candles burn in remembrance of: March Sanctuary Lamp: Joseph Fonseca by wife and sons Altar Candles: Tabernacle Candles: Deceased members of Carreiro & Aguiar Families by Dorvalino & Maria Luisa Carreiro Crucifix Candles: Manuel Blue Miranda Sr. by Mary Anne Tuttle What is it and how is celebrated? Is the reenacting the Passion of Our Lord Dates: Holy Week is the last week of Lent. Colors: In most churches, the decorations are red to symbolize the blood of martyrdom. Some churches remove all decorations on Good Friday, veiling anything that can t be removed in black or purple. Holy water is also removed from the fonts in churches on Good Friday and Holy Saturday in preparation for the blessing of the water at the Easter Vigil. This removal also corresponds to those days on which the Eucharist is not celebrated. Days: Palm Sunday (or Passion Sunday) Holy Thursday (or Maundy Thursday) Good Friday Holy Saturday The time from sundown on Holy Thursday to sundown on Easter Day is also known as the Triduum, which is Latin for three days. Parish Support Collected the Weekend of March 17 th & 18 th Budget: $3, Easter Flower Fund: $2, Pope Francis has asked our parish to support the Pontifical Good Friday Collection, which helps Christians in the Holy Land. Your support helps the church minister in parishes, provide Catholic schools and offer religious education. The Pontifical Good Friday Collection also helps to preserve the sacred shrines. The second collection Easter weekend, 3/31 & 4/1 is for our retired and infirm priests. Please be generous. Thank you for your continuous support. Some History Holy Week observances began in Jerusalem in the earliest days of the Church, when devout people traveled to Jerusalem at Passover to reenact the events of the week leading up to the Resurrection. Egeria was a Christian who traveled widely during the period of and wrote about Christian customs and observances in Egypt, Palestine, and Asia Minor. She described how religious tourists to Jerusalem reenacted the events of Holy Week. On Palm Sunday afternoon, the crowds waved palm fronds as they made a procession from the Mount of Olives into the city. Of course, the observances must have begun quite a number of years before Egeria witnessed them, or they wouldn t have been so elaborate. It s just that Egeria s description is the earliest we still have. The tourists took the customs home with them. Holy week observances spread to Spain by the fifth century, to Gaul and England by the early seventh century. They didn t spread to Rome until the twelfth century. The purpose of Holy Week is to reenact, relive, and participate in the passion of Jesus Christ. Palm Sunday (or Passion Sunday), the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. Holy Thursday (or Maundy Thursday), the institution of Communion and the betrayal by Judas. Good Friday, the arrest, trial, crucifixion, death, and burial of Jesus Christ. Holy Saturday, the Sabbath on which Jesus rested in the grave. Source: Catholic News Agency
