Ask the Pastor

† Theological musings and answers to selected questions by a confessional Lutheran pastor.

Catching My Breath

Lent, Christianity’s great penitential season, reaches its climax this week. Our Lord’s triumphal Palm Sunday entry into Jerusalem gives way to His suffering and death. Holy (Maundy) Thursday and Good Friday were among the earliest events regularly observed on the Christian calendar. Perhaps only the celebration of the Lord’s resurrection began sooner in the Church’s existence. The next few posts will address some questions I’ve received concerning Lent and Holy Week and will give me a brief break from bulletin typing and sermon preparing.

Send email to Ask the Pastor.

Walter Snyder is the pastor of Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Emma, Missouri and coauthor of the book What Do Lutherans Believe.
