Rev. Thomas Loya, Annunciation Byzantine Catholic Church

For many Christians, the season of Lent will soon come to its climactic moment in the observance of the death, burial and resurrection from the dead of Jesus Christ. This climactic moment is known as Holy Week, or as we say in my particular tradition, “Great Week.” Tonight at 7 p.m. at my parish of Annunciation — as we anticipate Great Week — we will celebrate a highly penitential service that is a veritable tour of the entire Bible. There is, however, another name that we give to Great Week. It is called the “Week of the Bridegroom,” and rightly so.
