“SERIOUS” RADIO, 90.5FM
Lent is almost history for this year and in a few hours we will begin to celebrate the sacred Triduum, the three most important days of the Catholic Christian calender. Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday comprise the Triduum and each has a special meaning for Catholics. Holy Thursday is the night we celebrate the institution of the Eucharist. Good Friday is the day we celebrate the reality that he died for us. And at the Easter Vigil in the final hours of Holy Saturday we relive again the reality that He rose from the dead. Many people express their concern for myself and the other priests at how busy we are during these days. Well, we are, but there is only one liturgy allowed each of these days, most confessions should have been heard, and Easter does not hold a candle to Christmas when it comes to bequeathing fatigue. Christmas is a killer, not liturgically necessarily, but because of all that leads to Christmas eve and Christmas day. Holy Week is much easier on us. Our Churches will be packed for Easter for sure but sadly there will be lots of room during the liturgies of the Triduum. If you have not attended these in the past, give it some serious thought. It is your Church at prayer at its very best. “Serious Radio 90.5 FM” will be broadcasting the entire liturgies of Holy Week live from the cathedral. My homilies will be posted throughout the coming days here and I will share with you some of my thoughts each day of why these days are so important. Stay tuned! Then expect a week of nothing following Easter Sunday.
