Colors of Grace"During Holy Week, the last days of Christ are often characterized with words like suffering and darkness. Taking a closer look, however, we can see [that] suffering and darkness [were], in fact, instruments of great joy and light.... From Thursday evenings' Passover mean through Friday's dark hours on the cross, the light of Christ continued to illuminate the Truth. With intense clarity, the Teacher was showing us by example the greatest lessons of his ministry: service, obedience, humility, and forgiveness. Through Christ, the full spectrum of God's grace is reflected in beautiful hues upon our lives.... In the suffering of this Holy Week, find joy. In its darkness, see Light. 'For light still shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.' This is the power of Christ's grace and the source of great joy."
