Also, "Naming the Unnamed Days of Holy Week." Fr. Mike Schmitz talks about the Sisters of the Holy Eucharist and the way they approach the final days leading up to Easter.

They have a technique for naming the days before Holy Week. We break them down on the program. They are:

Saturday before Palm Sunday: Commitment Saturday.

Sunday: Procession Sunday.

Monday: Extravagance Monday.

Tuesday: Compulsion to completion. Jesus has a fire in him that he is impelled to do the Fath’ers will,

Wednesday: The day of aloneness.

Thursday: The body given.

Friday: Impotence.

Saturday: Night. Darkness of the tomb. Coldness of death.

Sunday: Miracles. That all he did point to this one thing. Our King of Kings. The conqueror of death.
