Holy Week Services


I have read that Pope Pius XII re-instituted the Holy Week Services, I believe in the 1950’s. How was Holy Week celebrated before that?


For an overview I recommend the 1914 Catholic Encyclopedia entry for Holy Week. For further reading, I recommend the following book:

The Week of Salvation by James Monti

The book may be available through interlibrary loan or for purchase through your local Catholic bookstore.
