The Holy week is a unique time of fellowship with our Lord Jesus Christ in His journey of sufferings, death and resurrection. "It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified" (Galatians 3:1, ESV), "that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead" (Philippians 3:10-11). The NCV puts it this way, "I want to know Christ and the power that raised him from the dead. I want to share in his sufferings and become like him in his death. Then I have hope that I myself will be raised from the dead" (Philippians 3:10-11, NCV). Read the full article by Hegumen Fr. Abraam Sleman.
