Sacred Paschal Triduum – 2017

 

“Christ, our paschal lamb was sacrificed” (1 Cor 5,7)

 

 

In the Sacred Triduum, the Church solemnly celebrates the greatest mysteries of our redemption, keeping by means of special celebrations the memorial of her Lord crucified, buried and risen.

 

Thursday of the Lord’s Supper

Being as good as bread, Jesus becomes our daily spiritual food on our pilgrimage to the heavenly kingdom. He strengthens us with Himself wanting to be with us all the time, in everything.

 

Friday of the Lord’s Passion

Jesus offers Himself for the sins of the world, for our sins, for my sins. Dying on the cross He shows to all how much He does love us, till the end, till death, His own death.

 

Holy Saturday

We wait at the Lord’s tomb in prayer and fasting, meditating on His Passion and the mystery of death, even our own death. In our baptism, we are buried with Him and dead to sin, so that we too, with Him, may rise to new life with and in God.

Fr. Kgotsofalang SCJ
