The Passion of our Lord and God and Savior, Jesus Christ, is the suffering he endured for our salvation. The events of the Passion are celebrated during Holy Week, beginning with Lazarus Saturday and Palm Sunday. The climax of the Lord's Passion is his crucifixion on the cross. Preceding this, he suffers torments beginning with his prayer in Gethsemane, his arrest, trial, scourging, and bearing his cross to Calvary or Golgotha.

The Church celebrates the Passion of the Lord during Holy Week, whose hymns anticipate and celebrate these sufferings for our salvation.
