Holy Week Videos in Spanish to Share
U. S. A. | APOSTOLATE | NEWS
Two sets of videos guide missionaries in the spiritual meaning of these holy days. Sharing them can also be a form of missionary work.

April 4, 2009. Spanish-speakers going on missions this Holy Week have outstanding resources at their fingertips on the www.demisiones.com web site, the Spanish-language version of the MissionYouth web site. 

Although specifically designed for missionaries heading out into the field, these videos can also be used by people who will be living Holy Week at home, and freely shared with Spanish-speakers who are looking for something more to draw them closer to Christ. In fact, sharing them is a form of missionary work in itself.

The web site has two sets of videos—one offering spiritual meditations on the meaning of each day, and the other offering practical guidance to missionaries out in the field.

For Meditation
The first set of 5-minute videos covers the spiritual meaning of each day of Holy Week, from Palm Sunday to Holy Saturday. Each of the 6 videos features a Legionary priest giving spiritual guidance on how to live that particular day prayerfully and fruitfully, in light of the daily liturgy.

The featured Legionaries are Father Jesús Blázquez, Miguel Romeo, and Ignacio Camarena, LC.

The videos can be viewed in high or low resolution, downloaded as an MP3 audio file, viewed as an iPod video, or linked

to your YouTube channel.

For Action
The second set of videos offers missionaries practical guidelines for each day of Holy Week. Aimed specifically at the youth and families who will be evangelizing during Holy Week, the videos explain the contents of the missionary kit, and then give specific guidelines for the missionaries for each day of the week.

The videos are full of real footage from missions in Mexico, showing the live stations of the cross on Good Friday, the Easter Vigil Mass, and more. Even for those who are not going on missions this year, they can be a useful spiritual resource to live the holiest days of the year united to Christ and to the universal Church.
