And so it begins…

I imagine bells ringing in heaven as all the Saint and Angels watched from above a flurry of white chasubles entering sanctuaries all over earth. Since Monday there have been Chrism masses and I for one saw and was grateful for all the holy priests who are serving our Lord and his people. It is truly a joy to see them give their Fiat in this beautiful mass.

I imagine the dark influencer thought he won today on Spy Wednesday, when Judas Iscariots intent to betray Jesus, formed on Holy Wednesday, the day sometimes called “Spy Wednesday.” The word spy, as used in the term, means “ambush, ambuscade, snare”. Additionally, among the disciples, Judas clandestinely was a spy and Wednesday was the day he chose to betray Christ. Yet we embrace the cross knowing Jesus was triumphant and did what he said he would do, opening the gates of heaven for our us to be with the Father.

I imagine many have no idea what the Triduum is and that Catholics hold these days as very important. The Triduum, beginning Thursday, secures the end of Lent and marks the three high holiest days in the church. I wrote about it back 10 years ago… which is pretty awesome to think about… click here to read about these special days.

A very blessed and happy, holy Triduum and Easter to all of you. Thank you for journeying with me in growing closer to Christ!
