What a sacred mystery this next week is in the arc of the Gospel and the life of the Church! It was Jesus’ deep desire to have his friends be awake, attentive, and alongside him in his agonizing journey to the cross. This desire forms the bedrock of God’s invitation to us every Holy Week week, and we invite you to join us as we seek to companion Jesus from the upper room (his last supper), to Golgotha (the place of the skull, where he was crucified), to resurrection.
These events – known as the “Pascal/Easter/Holy Triduum” (the three days from Maundy Thursday to Easter Sunday) are the fulcrum of the entire Gospel, with immeasurable theological and spiritual significance. The Triduum not only represents a fullness of what God did in our story, but also provides an incomparable window into the stunning beauty of who God is. What kind of God is this – one who washes our feet, shares his body and blood, suffers and dies on a cross between thieves, and is resurrected? These are the sacred mysteries we desire to contemplate, embody, and experience this week – and we ask God for this grace.
