Today is Holy Saturday. Jesus was crucified yesterday. He will rise tomorrow. But what is happening today?
Today is Holy Friday: the most solemn day of the Armenian Church calendar, recalling the suffering, execution, and death of our Lord. These events are memorialized with readings from the psalms and gospels. Here are the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ last moments on the Cross:
In a message for Easter, Bishop Daniel reflects on a year that brought unimagined trials to our world—and unique, painful burdens to the Armenian people. But our Lord was no stranger to such burdens, and speaks to us as a father to his beloved children.
This week’s observance of Holy Week will go forward in the Eastern Diocese under strict observance of local safety regulations, with provision for in-person worship as well as the online broadcast of services.
Today the Armenian Church marks Holy Tuesday with an observance called the “Remembrance of the Ten Virgins.”
