Holy Week is the week that starts with Palm Sunday and ends with the Resurrection on Easter Sunday. The Hebrews consider sundown as the start of a new day. On Sunday, Jesus starts the week with a triumphant procession up the hill to Jerusalem. He is the most spectacular rabbi in Israel. The crowds welcome him by throwing palm branches along his path. On Monday, Mary the sister of Lazarus anoints the feet of Jesus with costly oils. Judas succumbs to envy. On Tuesday, Catholic church leaders consecrate the holy oils which are used during the church year at Baptism, Confirmation, Ordination, and to anoint the sick. On Wednesday, Judas meets with the chief priests to negotiate a price for the betrayal of Jesus. On Maundy Thursday, Jesus washes the feet of His disciples to demonstrate the importance of service. After the Passover dinner, day one, Jesus is arrested, tried, condemned, crucified, and buried. We call this Good Friday. At sundown, day two begins. Mary, his mother, and the disciples gather to observe the Sabbath. Everyone is worried. The third day, Sunday, begins at sundown, which is why the Vigil Mass may occur before midnight. At dawn, Mary runs to the tomb. She finds the stone rolled away and the tomb empty. This is the reason we celebrate Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.
