The Sacred Triduum is the most sacred time of the year. We do much more than remember past events: Last Supper, crucifixion, resurrection. We celebrate the Paschal Mystery. Jesus Christ died and rose, and so do we. We remember the past events so that we can better be the Christ today. We receive the Eucharist and become what we eat.
When a close friend or relative invites you to a meal, will you attend? Where else would you be? If your close friend or relative celebrates a victory, would you celebrate with them? Where else would you want to be? If your closest friend or relative is dying, would you be with them? Our God invites us to the Sacred Triduum. Where else would you be?
