The beginning of the Holy Week ushers in the end of the annual Lenten season.
As usual, it provided the much needed opportunity to return to God with lots of prayer, penance, and almsgiving.
Unfortunately, all good things must come to end. Thus, this religious season is ending, with the the beginning of the Holy Week, which began on Sunday, 9th April and ends on Saturday, 15th April.
During this week, there is the Palm Sunday, a day set aside for the celebration of Our Lord's triumphant entrance into Jerusalem.
Then, the Holy Thursday (celebrates the Son of God's last supper with the disciples), Good Friday (the commemoration of the crucifixion of Christ) and finally Easter Sunday.
This day marks Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead, the end of Holy Week, the end of Lent, and the beginning of the Easter season.
Now, just because the season is ending does not mean we stop seeking the face of God.
No, we can still use the remaining days of the religious season to our advantage.
We can still fast, pray, most importantly try our very best not to abandon the good things that we did during these 40 days.
Let us all learn to serve God daily, not just during Lent.
