This solemn week

At Mass today Father reminded us that today is the last day of Lent.  Tomorrow, Thursday, we begin the sacred Triduum - one day divided into three parts that prepare our hearts for the great miracle of Easter!  Lent is over.  Perhaps we have had a good Lent, perhaps not, or perhaps a mediocre Lent.  It doesn't matter.  We move on now and enter into that solemn time when we reflect and meditate on the events of  the Last Supper (Holy Thursday) on the Passion and death of our Lord (Good Friday), in the quiet stillness of (Holy Saturday) until we rejoice at His glorious Resurrection from the dead on Easter Sunday!   

Father Charles Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington, DC  has posted a leaflet on his blog  about Holy Week and the Sacred Triduum.  I encourage you to print it out and read it through the remainder of this week.  It might be helpful.

May the Lord walk with each one of us as we following Him on this journey.
