The Easter Triduum: Make Holy Week a Retreat

The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, in the eyes of the Church the tridium is seen as one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ’s Paschal Mystery (Christ’s life, death, and resurrection).

The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the

Easter Vigil.
