The Meaning of Holy Week

“Only when someone values love more highly than life, that is only when someone is ready to put life second to love, for the sake of love, can love be stronger and more than death? If it is, it is more than death, it must first be more than mere life.

Jesus’ total love for men, which leads him to the Cross, is perfected in total stepping-over to the Father and therein becomes stronger than death, because in this it is at the same time total ‘being held’ by HIM.” Pope Benedict XVI
