F.T.D.O.F.T. - Holy Week - 4/13/2014

The Meaning of Holy Week: Holy week precedes the feast of Easter, beginning with Palm Sunday and ending with Holy Saturday. The liturgy of the week commemorates the apprehension, suffering and death of Christ. 

On Palm Sunday the Church celebrates Christ's entrance into Jerusalem to accomplish his paschal mystery. Accordingly, the memorial of this event is included in every Mass, with soem type of procession before the principal Mass. 

Tuesday of Holy Week, we in the Saginaw Diocese celebrate the Chrism Mass. This Mass, which the bishop celebrates with his presbyterium and at which the oils are blessed, manifests the communion of the priests with their bishop. At this mass, the bishop will lead his priest in renewing their vows and commitments to the priesthood. 

Holy Thursday evening when the Mass of the Lord's Supper is celebrated begins the Easter Triduum: The three Holiest Days of the Church Year. The three days of the Triduum are established in this way: Day 1 begins Holy Thursday evening, when the Mass of the Lord's Supper begins - commerating Jesus' Last Supper with his disciples, and goes to Good Friday evening - on which we celebrate Jesus' passion and death on the cross; Day 2 begins the evening of Good Friday and goes to the evening of Holy Saturday - in which we are mourning the death of our Lord; Day 3 begins the evening of Holy Saturday-where we gather to celebrate the Easter Vigil in which we experience the power of darkness and light and leads us to the glorious resurrection of our Lord which continues in the Masses of Easter Sunday morning and concludes with the Evening Prayers on Easter Sunday. Thus the three holiest days of the church year. Let us proudly celebrate these together!!!
