H is for Hosanna – NEW! What does the word Hosanna mean from the Palm Sunday song of the people who welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem? Why do we echo these words during the Liturgy of the Eucharist? Watch this video to find out. 

P is for Passiontide – You might notice that the crosses, statues, and religious images inside the churches you see on TV are covered starting today. Or, you might decide to cover your crosses at home during the last two weeks before Easter (we are). Here’s why we do this. 

M is for Maundy ThursdayWe sometimes call Holy Thursday “Maundy” Thursday. The reason is pretty interesting and expresses the key phrase in the Gospel story we will hear this night. (Also, here is a video about “Spy” Wednesday.) 

I is for INRIAs people venerate the cross on Good Friday, they might notice the letters INRI printed on a scroll. This video explains what each letter means.
