“How Can I Make Holy Week Holy?” (Morning Air)

Dive into the spirit of Holy Week with the ultimate guide to making it the most transformative time of the year! 🌟

Holy Week is not just any week; it’s THE week that flipped the world on its celestial head, thanks to the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus. And who better to guide us through making this week extra holy than Brendan Gotta?

🔥 Liturgy Matters 🔥: Dive deep into the heart of Holy Week by attending the triduum liturgies—Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil. It’s a spiritual trifecta that could just revolutionize your soul.

🍽 Holy Thursday Hits Different 🍽: This day celebrates the Eucharist and priesthood’s institution. His pro tip? Start your fasting after the service rather than waiting until Good Friday.

👣 Sticking with Jesus Post-Mass 👣: After the Lord’s Supper Mass, stay in prayer before the reposed Blessed Sacrament. It’s your personal Gethsemane moment—can you stay awake with Jesus?

🚌 Seven-Church Shuffle 🚌: Embrace the Roman tradition of visiting seven churches post-liturgy.

🕊 Good Friday: A Holy Challenge 🕊

Brendan urges you to contemplate the profound sacrifice of Jesus, recommending you take the day off, (if possible,) to immerse yourself in prayer. Attend the stirring Good Friday liturgy, and maybe start the Divine Mercy Novena. And fasting? It’s a must to connect with Jesus’ suffering and sacrifice.

💡 Brendan’s Advice 💡: Stretch your spiritual muscles this Triduum. Engage in liturgy, fasting, and personal prayer. Let’s make Holy Week not just another date on the calendar but a life-changing experience.
