Colours and emotions of Holy Week


During this most extraordinary week that we call Holy, the liturgy of the church leads us in a confusing journey through the final week of the life of Jesus. Even the colours that the church chooses for each liturgy demonstrate the range of emotions that we are called to enter into during this week. From the red of welcome and celebration to accompany the palms and branches of the crowds who welcome Jesus into Jerusalem, into the solemn reading of the passion, we return for the first three days of Holy Week into the purple of Lent that has marked us over these past six weeks…

Journey with Jesus and the church across this roller-coaster of colour and emotion.
