This is the holiest of all weeks of the year! Are you ready?

We prepare ourselves for Christ’s passion this Good Friday as we ponder the solemn mystery of His death and resurrection. Fr. Sam Martin is here to help you do that.

The Dual Nature of Jesus

Fr. Martin points out the common misunderstanding of Jesus’ identity. We need for a personal relationship with Him beyond mere knowledge. This relationship, according to Fr. Martin, is crucial for spiritual growth and holiness.

Patrick and Father delve into the core events of Holy Week, from Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem to His crucifixion and resurrection. Fr. Martin stresses the inseparable link between suffering and glory, pointing out that Jesus’ journey is a model for Christians to follow.

A Call to Engagement and Evangelization
