On Sundays, we pause to anticipate the coming of Easter Sunday and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Jesus took the Twelve aside and told them, “We are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written by the prophets about the Son of Man will be fulfilled. He will be delivered over to the Gentiles. They will mock him, insult him and spit on him; they will flog him and kill him. On the third day, he will rise again.” – Luke 18:31-33
