During the Sacred Triduum (the word comes from Latin, meaning ‘three days’) we come together to celebrate the heart of our faith—the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ came to show us the meaning and purpose of life. In his own life on earth he revealed to us what it is to be fully human as God created us to be. He showed us how to live, how to relate to one another, how to build a relationship with our heavenly Father.
In his passion, death and resurrection, he confirmed that what he had revealed and promised was true:
- This is God’s world and God has power over all life and death.
- Nothing that can happen to us in life or death can separate us from God’s love for us.
- In death, life is changed, not ended.
