For Catholics, the Holy Week is a very special event that is celebrated long before the actual days occur. This year (2015), the commemoration of the Passion of Christ begins on Palm Sunday, which falls on March 29, 2015 and ends on Holy Saturday, which is on April 4, 2015. During this week-long celebration of devotion and faith, there are many traditions the Catholic Church encourages its members to participate in to welcome Easter Sunday.

The word “Eucharist” means thanksgiving, and that is why the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist is the celebration of the Blood and Body of Christ. It is the time where Christians could show their unending gratitude. From the appearance of bread and wine, our Lord Christ is contained, offered, and received. Christ is constantly present in the Holy Eucharist. The Holy Mass is also the time when all the faithful could be with God, to tell Him all of their praise and ask for guidance and help.
