.- In order to prepare for Holy Week and the celebration of Granada’s Passion play, known as the "Passio Granatensis," Archbishop Javier Martinez published a letter encouraging Easter to be celebrated as a time for recognizing the value of human life in all of its dimensions.

"Since that first Passion," writes the archbishop, "there is no human loneliness, there is no human sadness, there is no human poverty in which God is not present."

Thanks to the redeeming work of Jesus, "the true greatness and transcendence of God is revealed," he added.

Archbishop Martinez said that the Passion play, which will include 22 stations that will dot the streets of the city, is a "song to the infinite mercy of God, who reveals his greatness and his glory by revealing his love, by giving himself up to death for our life and for our hope."
