Today is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week. Bishop Edmund Whalen, Vicar for Clergy and Episcopal Vicar of Manhattan, walks us through the significance of this week to help us prepare to celebrate the Paschal Mystery, the passion and death of our Lord and His victorious resurrection.

And he also issues an invitation:“This Holy Week, come on back, come to Church, be part of the life of your parish and bring somebody with you. Because in today’s world, we need Holy Week because we need to be grounded in God.
