Praying With the Rites of Holy Week
As the most holy Three Days of the year begin this evening, I offer the talk I gave last night to those preparing to become Catholic. The Triduum (Latin: three days) begins on the evening of Holy Thursday and ends on the evening of Easter Sunday. During this time we commemorate and experience again the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Obviously the three days on which these events took place mark the most important days of all history, and the most important days of the liturgical year.
This talk was given to highlight some of the spiritual insights to be found in the ritual texts, music, and actions of these days. I hope that you will find this reflection helpful in your own living out of these most holy days. I wish you a Blessed Triduum.
