In Christian tradition, Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday and carries on through Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. It is a time for Christians to reflect on Jesus’ journey to the Cross, beginning with his triumphal entry into Jerusalem and concluding wish his lonely trek from the Upper Room through Gethsemane and ultimately to Calvary and the empty tomb.
