Holy Thursday 2013

Our Paschal Triduum begins. The word "triduum" indicates three. We begin our three days of commemorations - Holy Thursday, Good Friday and the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday night.

It is a deeply meaningful day in which we focus our attention on the gift of the Eucharist and the gift of the priesthood. For those discerning a religious vocation, I strongly encourage you to attend tonight's Mass of the Lord's Supper in your parish.

Tonight we will witness the washing of the feet, reminding us that service is at the heart of our vocation.

After the Mass the Blessed Sacrament will be taken to the altar of repose. Many will linger and "watch with the Lord".
These are blessed and grace-filled days.
Make the most of them.
