Passion Week (or known as the Holy Week) is a time of remembering the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem (Palm Sunday) all the way to the crucifixion. Various Christian traditions observe this week differently, but one unifying thing is that it recaptures the suffering and death of Jesus Christ.

The dictionary defines, “passion” as:

1) Any powerful or compelling emotion or feeling
2) An instance or experience of strong love
3) A strong or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire for anything
4) An outburst of strong emotion or feeling

As we think about Christ’s suffering and sacrifice on the cross, we want to experience a powerful, compelling and strong love for Christ… and may we do it extravagantly and with enthusiasm.
