"Love endures everything, love is stronger than death, love fears nothing." Sr. Faustina
Last week was Holy Week for Catholics around the world. The triumphant entry of Our Lord into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday led believers on a wave of emotions from joy to disbelief to sadness and finally to joy. Five years ago Holy Week fell a little earlier in the year, March 20th to March 27th. I remember that Holy Week like none other before it. It was the last week where Theresa was able to have a rational conversation and the first Pascha for us spent in a hospital.
In a blog post dated March 28, 2016, I wrote about how impressed I was with Ryan when he told me he was taking the $5 he received in his Easter basket and buying his Mom some chocolate to enjoy with our Easter dinner in her hospital room. I took many photos during that Holy Week but this one was one of my favorites from the week. My boy climbed up in the bed with his Mom and shared some of the Easter goodies with her. Little did we know that she had just 20 days remaining on her earthly journey.
