Please read the following and then answer the questions.

Holy Week 1

Holy Week 2

Holy Week 3

Holy Week 4

Holy Week 5

Why is Holy Week so special?
Why do you think this action of Jesus serving others was so special?
What does it tell you about Jesus?
Why is this action of Jesus an example for Christians?
What do you think of Peter’s reaction?

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
