Today we begin the Sacred Triduum, where Christ celebrated Passover with His Apostles and instituted the priesthood. He remains with us in humble Bread and Wine. Tonight, His Passion begins. Tomorrow, Good Friday, He hung on the cross. Pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities. God is dead. This could only be possible had God taken on human flesh. Word made flesh!
For this He came down to earth. God so loved the world ... Give it a listen while you look these beautiful paintings by Bouguereau. They capture the serene joy as Mary gives us Jesus and the utter desolation at what had to be done to save us. Wishing you a most blessed Triduum and a very happy Easter.
