Holy Week Songs: 7 Songs to Listen and Reflect To

If you’re online, then listen to some of these Holy Week songs in the coming days to reflect and reinforce your spirituality.

Holy Week is the time of the year when people take time off from their busy schedules to reflect, pray, or spend time with families. While some opt to go out of town, there are those who stay at home to relax or just head to churches for Visita Inglesia. This year’s Holy Week will see people slowly returning to churches to pray and reflect. Some still choose to observe at home and listen to gospel songs as their way of observing the season. We rounded up 7 of the most popular mass and gospel songs to listen to in observance of the season.
