Ready for the Triduum?

A wonderful place to reflect on the mysteries of Holy Week is in a gallery of a great museum with sacred art, especially with the Office ringing changes in your ears.

At the Met.

  1. Beautiful. For us, Tenebrae tonight. This is a good image to keep in mind while singing. Thank you for sharing.

    I am in deep countryside in the Midwest and cannot get to either Tenebrae, which I love, or Holy Thursday Mass, as I have no ride. So, please pray for me. I miss going. Hopefully, I shall get to Good Friday service. Have a peaceful week, Father Z.

    Yes, Fr. Ready to make this Triduum as meaningful as I can. I love the power and beauty of Triduum and everything that we remember, honor and celebrate. This is the essence of our faith – this is what we believe – this is what we are.

    Continued wishes for a safe and blessed journey, Fr. Z. And may all have a most blessed and holy Triduum and Easter.

    Just been to confession, at lunchbreak. Many people there. Will be singing at all the services from tonight to Sunday morning. N.O. but with a good deal of chant.

    Ecce lignum crucis, in quo Salus mundi pependit. Venite adoremus.

    I have been living back in my native Rhode Island for less than a year and since there is no Tridentine Triduum in R.I. I am visiting with my friend here in Connecticut and went last night for Maundy Thursday to Saint Mary’s of Norwalk….. WOW!!!!!!!! We are going back today for 3:00 Passion of the Lord, 7:00 Seven Last Words, 7:45 Outdoor Procession. Then tomorrow April 19 at 8:00 P.M. – Holy Mass of the Resurrection – Solemn High in the Extraordinary Form. They also have Matins and Lauds tomorrow starting at 9am and more, listed on their website. Based on what I experienced last night, I would highly recommend this church to anyone who loves the traditional liturgy. :-) –John
