As you already know, Holy Week – during which we follow Christ from his triumphant entrance into Jerusalem, to the foot of the Cross, to an empty tomb – is going to be very different this year.

St Teresa’s Church would have been packed on Easter Sunday but in 2020 we won’t be able to receive communion and celebrate the resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour together inside the church.

This year we will observe Holy Week at home.

Under normal circumstances, many would have also liked to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation or Confession as preparation for the resurrection, a sort of an Easter duty. But, again, we cannot do so this year.

What does it mean for our spiritual well-being and salvation if we can’t fulfil our “Easter Duties”? Cardinal Vincent gives us the answer in this video.
