Jesus freely chose to suffer and die so that our sins could be forgiven and we could be reconciled to the Father. The motivation our Lord had for doing this was his great love for us and his desire to be faithful to the will of his Father. By entering more deeply into our Lord’s passion, we can come to experience more fully his great love for us. Holy Week is the week which precedes the great Feast of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday - it includes the last days of Lent and the beginning of the Easter Triduum. During Holy Week, the Church celebrates the mysteries of salvation accomplished by Christ in the last days of his life on earth, beginning with his messianic entrance into Jerusalem. On Holy Thursday, Mass at 7:00 pm, we celebrate the institution of the Eucharist and the Priesthood. During His celebration of the Passover, Jesus gave the apostles His model of servanthood to carry forward as they became the first priests of the Church. The symbolic action of the washing of the feet is a visual reminder of Christ’s mandatum (or mandate) to humble service. As the ritual takes place, we are asked to recommit ourselves to lives of loving service. After the Last Supper, Jesus led his Apostles to a quiet place of prayer. Our personal vigil with Christ begins as we honour the Blessed Sacrament following Mass. Following age-old tradition, the altar will be cleared in preparation for the service of the Lord’s Passion. The starkness of the sanctuary should impress upon us that Jesus emptied himself totally for us on Good Friday only to fill us with his blessed joy on Easter morning. The Sacred Pascal Triduum: Through his Paschal Mystery, the Lord Jesus redeemed the human race and gave perfect glory to the Father. By dying, Christ destroyed our death; by rising, he restored our life. For this reason, the Easter Triduum, when we celebrate the suffering, death and resurrection of our Lord is the high point of the liturgical year. The Easter Solemnity is to the year what Sunday is to the week. Good Friday, Celebration at 6:00 pm: Through his suffering and death, Jesus reveals his boundless love for us. In submission to the will of his heavenly Father, Jesus offers himself for our redemption. By his suffering and death, Jesus defeats the power of sin over us. At the same time, in his saving act, Jesus demonstrates the extent of God’s mercy and love for each of us. What sacrifice are we willing to make in response to great love? On Holy Saturday, Mass at 8:30 pm, the people of God remain in prayer and fasting at the tomb of the Lord, meditating on his sufferings, death, and descent to the dead. Throughout this day the faithful are invited to continue the solemn paschal fast which they began on Good Friday. The Church abstains from the Sacrifice of Mass today (no 5 pm Mass), with the altar left bare until the Vigil service. During the solemn vigil service, a night of prayer which looks forward to the celebration of the Lord’s resurrection, mourning will give way to the joys of Eastertide, which we will celebrate for fifty days until Pentecost Sunday.
