SACRED TRIDUUM – MAUNDY THURSDAY

SACRED TRIDUUM  

Christ redeemed us all and gave perfect glory to God principally through his paschal mystery: dying he destroyed our death and rising he restored our life. Therefore the Easter Triduum of the passion and resurrection of Christ is the culmination of the entire liturgical year. Thus the solemnity of Easter has the same kind of preeminence in the liturgical year that Sunday has in the week. The Easter Triduum begins with the evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper, reaches its high point in the Easter Vigil, and closes with Vespers on Easter Sunday.

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,

always and everywhere to give you thanks,

Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God,

through Christ our Lord.

For he is the true and eternal Priest,

who instituted the pattern of an everlasting sacrifice

and was the first to offer himself as the saving Victim,

commanding us to make this offering as his memorial.

As we eat his flesh that was sacrificed for us,

we are made strong,

and, as we drink his Blood that was poured out for us,

we are washed clean.

And so, with Angels and Archangels,

with Thrones and Dominions,

and with all the hosts and Powers of heaven,

we sing the hymn of your glory,
