With the celebration of Palm Sunday this weekend, we set off into the holiest week of the Church year. This is a week that culminates with those events that make our faith what they are: Jesus’ suffering, death, and His resurrection. These events are marked by a three part celebration we call the Triduum – 3 days – which take place on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday (with the Easter Vigil late Saturday night.) I strongly encourage you to get to all three celebrations – because each one brings to light a little about who we are as Christians and what we believe about our faith.
This will be a bit of a longer post – trying help you see the beauty of each of these days – but hopefully it will help bring them to life for you.
