(Vatican Radio) Holy Week which leads us to the resurrection of Our Lord on Easter Sunday is the most important period in the Church’s calendar.

During the Triduum, those emotional days are laid bare and commemorated with ceremonies and Eucharistic celebrations in Rome and far beyond.

In the first of a series of reflections for this Holy Week, we shine the spotlight on the intense events of Holy Thursday, looking at the betrayal of Jesus and his fear and anguish in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Monsignor Eugene Sylva, English language official at the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization talks to Lydia O’Kane about these emotions and the disciples’apathetic response in the Garden.
