For 2000 years, Christians considered this week (Holy Week) as the most solemn and holiest of weeks of the Year - especially the sacred Triduum: the last three days (Holy/Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday) http://en.wikipedia.org... leading up to the celebration of the Resurrection of Our Lord (Easter). This is still the case among traditional Catholics - who continue to celebrate the wonderful Roman Liturgy (like Tenebrae http://www.sistersofcarmel.com...) in Latin and Gregorian Chant, as it has been done by monks, nuns, clergy and laypeople for centuries. I find so much deeper meaning flowing from the Liturgy of the Church these days. For me, it all boils down to one word - Love.
During these days of extra fasting, prayer, silence, and self denial I feel drawn to more deeply contemplate/think of the incredible love Our Lord Jesus Christ manifested to me, a miserable sinner, during His Passion and death. What greater proof of Love has anyone ever shown me?
I want to wish other Christians here a blessed Holy Week and a Blessed Easter. I also wondered if any other Christian here will be participating in the Liturgy of Holy Week? God bless.
