The Journey Begins

This week is what the Orthodox call “holy week.”  It is the week that we journey with Christ, beginning with Palm Sunday (this last Sunday) towards the cross.  As we journey with Christ to the cross, we look expectantly towards the resurrection.  We’re reminded that as we partake in His death, so shall we partake in His resurrection.  Just like Lazarus last Saturday, with Lazarus Saturday, Christ made the universal resurrection of man possible.  This Holy Thursday and Friday, we will lament, as did the Mother of God, the death of our Lord.  This weekend though we will rejoice at His resurrection and our eventual resurrection as much as we are in Him.  For we are those who “look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.”
