Ten Ways to Make Your Holy Week A Little Holier

Ten Ways to Make Your Holy Week A Little Holier

The Holy Week isn’t just about the holidays. More than just a three-day vacation, the Holy Week is the perfect time to reflect and have a personal retreat. While the Holy Week is more traditionally practiced by Roman Catholics, reflecting on the teachings of the Bible and making a little sacrifice is definitely not just for the Catholics, but to all Christians.

While some of the concepts that this article will mention mostly come from Catholic traditions, other ways to make the Holy Week holier for Christians are also included.

Are your plans for the Holy Week only include a beach vacation or going back to your hometown? Before you pack your bags for the year’s long holiday, try to reflect on these and try to make the Holy Week a reflective one.

Here are Ten Ways to Make Your Holy Week A Little Holier 

1. Church Visit

Visiting the Church isn’t just for Catholics, with today’s busy work schedule, some Christians aren’t able to attend their local Church. The Holy Week is a perfect time to visit your local Church.

10. Charity Works

Faith is reflected more in our actions than in our words or thoughts. An act of charity goes a long way, and the Holy Week is the perfect time to do one.
