While the Gospel of Luke tells us that, “every day he was teaching in the temple,” Holy Wednesday is referred to as a day of rest for Jesus. While in Bethany, a woman anointed Jesus’ feet with perfume. This angered Judas. He felt the perfume should have been sold, and the money put to good use.
Each year on April 8, we celebrate National Empanada Day. The name Empanada comes from the Galicia, Portuguese and Spanish verb em pandar, which means to wrap or coat in bread. Empanadas are made by folding dough or bread around a seasoned filling. The Empanadas are then baked or fried, like savory hand pies.
