On Thursday, we entered Holy week, in which we celebrate Jesus’s passion, death, and ressurection. On Thursday, we celebrate the Last Supper, the Passover meal in which he ate his last meal on earth with his Disciples. This also the night in which Jesus is betrayed by Judas, and before that, goes to pray in the garden before his capture. There is also is a sadness to the day, because this is the day that Peter denys Jesus three times. On Friday, which is Good Friday, Jesus dies on the cross. It is called Good Friday because Jesus died for us to clean us of our sins and so we could go to Heaven and enjoy eternal life. Later in the day, Jesus’s body was taken down from the cross, and laid in a tomb. On Saturday, we endure the waiting of Jesus’s ressurection, in which the Disciples and Mary, the mother of Jesus, hid from the soldiers, but with grief over the death of Jesus.
On Sunday, Easter Sunday, Jesus rises from the dead, and the news is discovered when three women come to visit Jesus’s tomb. To their dismay, the stone in front of the tomb has been rolled away and it is empty. As they mourn this fact an angel appears to them, and tells them that Jesus has risen. They soon tell the Disciples, and Jesus stayed on Earth for 4o more days, before his Accension into Heaven, which is not celebrated in Holy Week. This is what Easter is really about; Jesus’s death on the cross for us to be free from sins and so we could enjoy eternal life, and the joy of his Ressurection. That’s what Easter is all about.
