Holy Week: In Christianity is the last week of Lent and the week before Easter.

Holy week includes Palm Sunday, Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday, Holy Wednesday, Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday), Good Friday and Holy Saturday.

Palm Sunday (Passion Sunday)
- Celebrated to commemorate the entrance of the Messiah into Jerusalem, to accomplish His paschal mystery.

Holy Monday
- On Monday, the Gospel tells of the anointing of Jesus at Bethany (John 12:1-11), an event that occurred before the Palm Sunday event described in John 12:12-19.

Holy Tuesday
- On Tuesday, the Gospel recalls the foretelling, at the Last Supper, of Judas' betrayal and Peter's denial of Jesus (John 13:21-38).

Holy Wednesday
- On Wednesday, the Gospel retells Judas' arranging his betrayal with the high priests (Matthew 26:14-25), the reason why the day has also been called Spy Wednesday.

Holy Thursday (Maundy Thursday)
- The Mass of the Lord's Supper commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus with his Twelve Apostles, "the institution of the Eucharist, the institution of the priesthood, and the commandment of brotherly love that Jesus gave after washing the feet of his disciples."

Good Friday
- is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday, or Easter Friday, though the latter properly refers to the Friday in Easter week.
