[[Image:crucifixionpascha.jpg|100px|left]]For the Orthodox Christian, '''[[Holy Week]]''' is the week from the conclusion of Great Lent on the Saturday of Lazarus to the celebration of the Great and Holy Pascha, the Resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. This week is also often called the Great and Holy Week.
As leave is taken from Great Lent with the celebration of the Saturday of Lazarus, which remembers Christ’s raising of Lazarus from the dead and the promise of universal resurrection for all, a week is entered during which the church services remember Christ’s last week, the Holy Week, before his crucifixion and resurrection.
