The TRIDUUM  (from the Latin for "three days") marks the three holiest days in the Christian Year, beginning the evening of Maundy Thursday, through Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and ending with the glorious joyful celebration of Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday.  Participation in these days walks us through the final hours of Jesus' life:  his final farewell words to his disciples ("Maundy" means the new mandate Jesus gave to serve and love each other) during their last meal together;  his prayers in the garden, his betrayal and arrest, the "trial" by authorities of the Roman empire conspiring with religious institutional leaders, his cruel execution for political treason, his burial, the grief of Holy Saturday, (descent ot Hell), and being raised from the dead.

All of these events of Jesus' story connect in some with the very real events of every human being, with our own story, personally and comunally, our own sufferings, deaths, waitings and transformations. How is God present and at work in and through all of these?  Participation in the story of the Triduum gives us a prolonged meditation which will give us new insights into how God is bringing about new life in our midst.
