Holy Week Has Begun

We have begun Holy Week, when the Church enters more deeply into meditation on the suffering, death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.

He endured this in order to redeem human life. Life was sacred because he made it, and by His Passion and resurrection it is even more sacred because it is now raised to the heights of heaven with Him. In the book of Revelation, the Risen Christ declares, “To the victor I will give the right to sit with me on my throne.” St. Paul likewise declares, “If we hold out until the end, we shall reign with Him.” The destiny of the human person, therefore, is the heights of heaven — and that is yet another reason why Christians oppose abortion, which throws that life in the garbage.
