Connecting these three Holy Days

As I reflect on these 3 days of Triduum, I believe they give us a template for living religious life.

  • Holy Thursday for me is about being of service to others.  The washing of the feet continues to call me to a deeper reflection on how as "Sister" I am called to give my gifts for others.  The institution of the Eucharist reminds me that I am blessed, broken and shared for the life of Church.
  • Good Friday is about putting all my trust in God's way, even when I am not sure of the outcome.
  • Easter Vigil/Easter Sunday remind me that like Mary Magdalene in the garden … be open to God calling my name and turning towards the gift of new life.

May this Easter season bless you with peace.
