The End and the Beginning

Daily Devotions for Holy Week by Mary Earle

Daily Devotions for Holy Week

Palm Sunday
Today in Jerusalem, and all around the world, many Christians observe Palm Sunday, the day that commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into that holy city.

Holy Monday
The gospel lesson appointed for Holy Monday takes us to the household of Mary, Martha and Lazarus.

Holy Tuesday
Jesus says, “I have come as light into the world.”

Holy Wednesday
In December of 2005, my older son Bryan died at age 31 of brain cancer. In his time of living with the cancer, I had a glimpse of the kind of love that Jesus is speaking of on this Holy Wednesday.

Maundy Thursday
Then Jesus poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was tied around him.
—John 13:5

Good Friday
A day of great solemnity, Good Friday calls us to do what the disciples could not. Good Friday calls us to join Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Jesus and John at the foot of the cross.

Holy Saturday
Holy Saturday is sometimes called the Great Sabbath, referring to Jesus being asleep in death, resting before being raised.

Easter Sunday
When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled back.
—Mark 16:4
