We are pleased to announce the release of new material for Holy Week, translated and adapted from our Archdiocese's official website, in collaboration with the Metropolis of Buenos Aires and His Eminence Metropolitan Iosiph. Our commitment to the catechesis and faith formation of our Hispanic faithful has inspired us to present this material in direct and simple language, providing informative and purely catechetical content.
This material is not only intended for our faithful but also for anyone interested in learning about how we celebrate Holy Week as Orthodox Christians. It is our hope that this material will aid in spiritual growth and help our faithful to approach this Great and Holy Week with spiritual openness and receptivity, allowing them to receive the uncreated light emanating from the empty tomb of Christ.
As we approach Holy Week, we invite all Spanish speakers to access this material and strengthen their faith. May this week be an opportunity to purify ourselves of passionate stains and move forward in life, comforted by the knowledge that Christ has risen from the dead and has granted us the gift of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, meekness, and self-control (Gal. 5:22-23).
