WATCH: How to Pray Through Holy Week

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 03/19/16

Fr. Mike Schmitz tell us how to make the coming week spiritually rich, using a method of some Franciscan nuns

How do we make Holy Week distinct and special from all other weeks, when it comes to prayer? Fr. Mike Schmitz lets us in on an approach we can take to Holy Week — it’s the way the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist in Duluth do it. As we begin to walk with Jesus from his entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, to Calvary, and then to the resurrection, this unique way of praying can help us enter into Holy Week more deeply.
