Holy Week is the “most important and solemn week of the year: the Week that leads us to the Resurrection of the Lord. 
St. Paul, in this regard, said words that we should learn by heart. These are: “If Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty, your faith is also empty” (1 Cor 15, 14).

The Holy Week that begins should strengthen our vital bond with the Risen One, renew our bond with the Church of Christ and deepen our relations with our brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus “. 
We are in the heart of Holy Week and we are preparing to live the Easter Triduum, to retrace faithfully the salient moments of the arrest, condemnation, crucifixion of Jesus, Son of the Queen of Peace: “We live Holy Week in real time.

Medjugorje: we are witnesses of Christ risen from the dead

This means that, from hour to hour and from day to day, we are invited to follow Jesus and all that he lived before the Passion and during the Passion, as well as his death on the Cross. Finally, we will become witnesses of his Resurrection in immense joy, for he is alive! ” 
After the Holy Mass in Coena Domini and the rite of the Via Crucis , we await the resurrection, with extreme confidence and in prayer, reflecting on our life conduct: “How many baptized, confirmed and believing Christians have fallen into sin and become atheists , free thinkers and enemies of Christ and his Church: “Crucify him, prevent him, spit on him!”

How many times do we impose the cross on others instead of helping them carry it? How many times do we betray God and those closest to us? 
Dear brothers and sisters, Holy Week invites us to cry like Saint Peter. He had sworn, “I don’t know that man!” But then he remembered what Jesus had told him: “Before the cock crows, you will deny me three times”. And coming out, Peter wept bitterly (Mt 26, 75). 
Yes, those tears are necessary! Amen”.
