Easter Triduum

Holy Week of our Lord’s Paschal Mystery

After living and celebrating the holy and penitential season of Lent, we enter into Holy Week. The liturgical year reaches its climax in the celebration of the Triduum, the greatest of all liturgies. On Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil, we truly walk with Christ and enter into his saving mystery. Even though the Triduum is celebrated over three days, it is actually one liturgy that begins Holy Thursday evening and concludes with Evening Prayer of Easter Sunday. We literally walk and journey with Christ from the celebration of the Last Supper, to the Agony in the Garden, through the Passion and Crucifixion, unto the celebration and joy of the Resurrection. It is a powerful and moving experience that all Catholics should experience.
