What Happened During Holy Week:

§ Palm Sunday: Liturgical colour, red. Jesus rides a donkey into Jerusalem, the people wave palm branches at him shouting “Hosanna”.

§ Holy Monday: Liturgical colour, purple. Jesus and his disciples go into the temple, and Jesus overturns the tables since people are selling things rather than praying there.

§ Holy Tuesday: Liturgical colour, purple. Jesus and the disciples return to the temple and teach the people many things with parables and give the people the new commandment.

§ Holy Wednesday (AKA Spy Wednesday): Liturgical colour, purple. Judas agrees to hand over Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.

§ Holy Thursday (AKA Maundy Thursday): Liturgical colour, white. Jesus has the Last Supper, which is the institution of the Eucharist and the first mass. He also washes the feet of his disciples. Jesus asks his disciples to pray in the garden with him all night, and they fall asleep.

§ Good Friday: Liturgical colour, black. Jesus dies on the cross. All the things from the stations of the cross happen this day.

§ Holy Saturday: Jesus is dead in the tomb. The evening of Holy Saturday is considered the “vigil”, and Easter celebrating can begin then.
