The Easter Triduum

27 Mar

This Is The Time as Lent Ends, as The Christ Enters The Time Of His Passion.

As Today is “Spy Wednesday”, when Judas, Son of Simon The Iscariot, went to the Pharisees to cut a deal to hand over Jesus to be put to Death, Lent Ends in Conspiracy, as an Apostle(Treasurer Of), who had his hands in the Proverbial “Cookie Jar” more times than One Can Imagine, Judas betrays Jesus in a cash deal, supposedly 30 Pieces of Silver.

The Institution of Both The Catholic Priesthood & The Eucharist, occur on Maundy(Holy)Thursday, at a Passover Seder in Jerusalem, in a place called “The Upper Room.” It is here, when Judas goes to complete his betrayal of The Christ. The Church offers The Mass Of The Lord’s Supper, which includes the Re-Enactment of when Jesus washed the Feet of The Apostles. The “Gloria In Excelcis Deo”, is Chanted today.

On Good Friday, Christ’s Death, opens Heaven, after being closed since the Original Sin of Adam & Eve. It is a Day of The Liturgy Of The Word & Mass of the Pre-Sanctified, as no Consecration Of The Elements(Bread & Wine) occurs today, with the Commemoration of The Ultimate Sacrifice of Christ On The Cross, occurs.

Holy Saturday, is when The Church is Silent until The Easter Vigil.  The Fire Of Light Is Lit, signaling that The Easter Vigil is beginning, about 7:30PM, EDT, at Sundown. Candles are lit, reminding all of One’s Baptism. The “Gloria In Excelcis Deo” is chanted. At The Gospel, for the 1st Time in awhile, “Alleluia” is sung. This is a Very Emotional Chant, signifying that “Christ Is Risen.” I have either cried or choked back Tears, whenever this occurs. The Church Is Alive.

He Is Risen.”

Amen!
