Holy Week 2021 at Santa Rita Abbey

Happy Easter! May our risen Lord Jesus fill your minds and hearts with his peace! Here are photos from our celebration of Holy Week. Fr. Mark Scott, OCSO, returned just in time to celebrate these most holy days with us. Photos from the Easter Vigil and Easter Day will follow in a separate journal entry.

Palm Sunday

Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord . . . The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark

Holy Thursday

Sing my tongue the Savior’s glory, of his flesh the mystery sing . . . Stay here and keep watch while I pray.

Good Friday

Christ became obedient for us, even to death, dying on the cross . . . Behold the wood of the cross . . . come let us adore!

Holy Saturday

Holy Sabbath stands in mourning where the Son of Man lies dead . . . but there were signs of the coming Resurrection everywhere we looked!
