We are heading into Holy Week. Holy cow! Soon enough we will be celebrating the Triduum. The Triduum is a three day celebration which is composed of Maundy Thursday (or Holy Thursday,) Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. Evidence of the fact that it is indeed one long celebration you will notice that there is not (or shouldn’t be) a closing hymn at the end of Maundy Thursday (we go into adoration) there is neither an opening nor a closing hymn on Good Friday, and Holy Saturday begins with the blessing of the fire.
For Catholics then that means we do not stop our observance of this holy time when we leave church. We carry it with us to the domestic church – to our homes – work place – school - wherever we may be we carry with us the Passion of our Lord and mark it in any special way we can. So get ready! It is almost here! What will you do?
As a complete side note - Blogger seems to be working much better now! My frustration is passing quickly.
