No other Sunday in the liturgical year reflects such dramatic contrast as today – Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord. What begins with songs of triumph quickly shifts into remembrance of the Lord’s passion. We enter into Holy Week which marks the apex of the liturgical year. The Triduum (the Latin word for three days) is celebrated as one liturgy over a three day period. On Holy Thursday we celebrate the Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper (7 pm). Because of COVID-19 we will not have the foot washing in the church but invite you to do this as a family afterwards in your home. The altar of repose this year will be set up near the Lady of Guadalupe shrine in the corner of the sanctuary. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will take place until 10 pm. On Good Friday we celebrate the Passion of the Lord (7 pm). The Veneration of the Cross will take place at the end of the service. On Holy Saturday the Easter Vigil will take place at 8 pm and lasts for about three hours. We will live stream all our Triduum and Easter services. I will speak about Easter next weekend. I hope that all of you may enter into these days with the mind of Jesus who emptied himself so that he might be filled with the powerful love of the Resurrection. Have a blessed Holy Week!
