As we prepare for the memorial of the death and ressurrection of Our Lord Jesus, we live out what the Apostles experienced through the sacred Liturgy of what we call the Sacred Triduum, the Three Holy Days. Thursday night we celebrate the memorial of the first Mass ever celebrated. This night is when Jesus consecrated the bread and wine and made them into the Body and Blood of Himself. It is also the same night Jesyus washed the feet of the apostles. This is known as Holy Thursday. The next day is Good Friday where we solomly remember the passion and death of Our Lord Jesus at the Veneration of the Cross service. The next day, Saturday at the Easter Vigil is where we celebrate the Ressurrection of Our Lord Jesus in the evening. It is the culmination of the Good News of God’s goodness to us by the grace won for us as it is expressed in Jesus’ own rising from the dead.
