Walking through the Triduum
« on: April 04, 2012, 07:28:33 AM »
Busted Halo (that goldmine of awesomeness) has an article about how to get the most out of the Easter Triduum i.e. Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday into the Easter Vigil. Here's a slice:

The Triduum (Trih-DU-UM) is the time of the Church year when we celebrate the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This three-day celebration begins with the Holy Thursday Mass and continues on Good Friday with the Liturgy of the Lordís Passion. At the end of this liturgy, we leave the church in silence, waiting to celebrate the glory of our Lordís resurrection. Then, on Saturday at sun down, the Church re-gathers to celebrate the final, and most grand, moment of the Triduum: the Resurrection of our Lord.

The Triduum is somewhat like a three-day prayer marathon, and if you are a novice there may be some rituals that are unfamiliar to you. This guide will help you walk and pray through the liturgies of the Triduum.
