Passion Sunday (Palm Sunday) Holy Week begins on this Sunday with the commemoration of the entrance of the Lord into Jerusalem. The palms are blessed and should be taken home, where they will serve as a reminder of the victory of Christ. Next year, they will be burned and placed on our foreheads on Ash Wednesday.
Mass of Chrism This Mass, which the Bishop concelebrates with his college of priests and at which he consecrates the holy chrism and blesses the other oils, manifests the communion of the priests with their bishop. These oils will be used in the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Ordination and Anointing of the sick during the next year.
The Easter Triduum The Fathers of the Church saw this celebration as a unitive commemoration: St Augustine spoke of ‘the most holy triduum of the crucified, buried & risen Lord’.
Holy Thursday This Mass is, first of all, the memorial of the institution of the Eucharist. The tradition of washing the feet should be maintained. The Altar of Repose for the reservation of the Blessed Sacrament that will be distributed in Communion on Good Friday, should be prepared and adorned in such a way as to be conductive to prayer and meditation. The faithful are encouraged to spend some time at the Altar of Repose during the night before the Blessed Sacrament.
Good Friday Celebration of the Lord’s Passion. On this day when ‘Christ our passover was sacrificed’ (1 Cor 5:7), the Church meditates on the Passion of her Lord, venerates the Cross, commemorates her origin from the side of Christ on the Cross, and intercedes for the salvation of the whole world. On this day, in accordance with ancient tradition, the Church does not celebrate Eucharist; Holy Communion is distributed to the faithful during the celebration of the Lord’s Passion. Devotions, such as the Way of the Cross are encouraged today.
The Easter Vigil In accordance with ancient tradition, this night is one of the vigil for the Lord. St. Augustine called it the ‘mother of all vigils’. There are four parts to the Rite: 1. Service of Light: The new fire should be blessed to light the Paschal Candle. 2. Liturgy of the Word 3. Liturgy of Baptism when all congregations renew their baptismal vows in this Year of Priest. 4. Liturgy of the Eucharist. ‘Christ is Risen, Alleluia!’
