This is our continuing coverage of the observance of the Paschal Triduum, the three-day Passover of the Lord, of the Catholic Easter festivities.
Just to clarify, the three-day passover is being counted this way: From Holy Thursday at sunset, we count the days in the Jewish perspective, as in from sunset to sunset.
Highlight of the three-day event, are the mystery of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. For the pious believers, it means we are created anew, received rest and refreshment, and raised with Jesus into eternal light.
So that the Paschal Mystery is the mystery of “christening”- Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist, the mystery of passover in Christ.
