Easter meaning

Mar 26, 2016

This entire weekend from Thursday to Monday is known throughout the world as the Easter break, but we Christians mark these Triduum days at a deeper level, knowing them to be the journey of the ultimate and life-giving events of the life of Jesus.

On each of these three days Jesus gives meaning to the lows and the highs of our own human existence.

Each day has it mood: from Holy Thursday Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper, to Good Friday morning’s Way of the Cross and 3.00pm Celebration of Lord’s Passion, to the waiting of Holy Saturday before the Easter Vigil Mass of the Resurrection of Jesus, to Easter Sunday’s sunrise reminding us of the cosmic consequences of these events.

It is Holy Saturday morning as a write, before dawn. During the week I recorded this brief video clip in an attempt to help us all to appreciate more deeply the life-giving significance of the Resurrection of Jesus. I hope you find it helpful.
