This morning the children of St Marie's School led us by means of drama and song through the events of Holy Week.
We began with Jesus and His Apostles gathering in the Upper Room to celebrate the Passover
As we know Jesus gave a new meaning to the events of Passover when he surprised the Apostles by taking break and saying 'This is my Body' and taking the wine and saying 'This is my Blood. Do this in memory of Me.'
From the Last Supper celebration with His Apostles Jesus is then arrested and condemned to death by Pilate and led to His death on the Cross.
The soldiers accompany Him to Calvary where He suffers and dies on the cross.
The dead body of Our Lord is placed in the tomb. The women go to anoint His body and stay for a while by the tomb.
As Christians we know that Good Friday was not the end.
Our Lord was to rise from the dead on the third day.
It is the central event of our Faith and we celebrate His Glorious Resurrection on Easter Day
