Holy Week has arrived! Fr. John Ezratty joins Jessica to talk about each day of the Triduum and how you can enter into the Church’s prayer more deeply. Fr. John and Jess discuss:
- Monastic traditions related to Holy Thursday
- Why the Church strips the altars and covers statues
- How the Church intercedes for the world on Good Friday
- The silence of Holy Saturday

Fr. John Ignatius Ezratty is a priest in the Miles Christi religious order and a FOCUS national chaplain.
