The Triduum: The Dance of Passion
Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday
When you do these things, remember me.
—1 Corinthians 11:24
Into your hands, I commit my spirit.
A Poem Prayer for Pondering:
A Cradle and a Cross
A cradle and a cross,
And between these, a life.
Bethlehem and Jerusalem...
a birth and a death.
One of “sorrows” who often wept,
One of “joys” who also kept
alive and real.
O God, today let us feel
the surge of that life,
the beauty of that love,
the power of the cross!
In Jesus’ name, we pray. AMEN
Join in the Dance Holy Week invites us each year into the dance of Passion. The word “Passion” means both ardent love and profound suffering, both of which are intimate parts of the choreography of these holy days.
