Holy Week for the Orthodox Church (or "Eastern Church") begins tomorrow with Palm Sunday. This week is called by the Orthodox "Holy and Great Week" (ie, "Holy and Great Thursday," "Holy and Great Friday," "Holy and Great Saturday"). What is called "Easter" in the West is called "Holy Pascha" in the East, this being the celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord.
The difference in timing of these religious observances in the East and West has a long history in the calendars used by the different traditions. Whether or not this holy week will ever be observed simultaneously in the East and the West, the current recognition of this week as holy in the two major Christian traditions of the world provides a "double" solemn witness to believers and non-believers alike of the central and salvific events of Christ's suffering, death and resurrection.
On this blog there are links to some blogs by Orthodox authors that you are invited to visit. They may provide more information on the belief and practices of this week as observed among the Orthodox Christians.
A blessed Holy and Great Week and Holy Pascha to those in the Orthodox Church.
