Washing of feet marks Holy Thursday

GEORGE TOWN: Migrants from Vietnam and the Philippines, students from Sabah and Sarawak and the disabled were among 12 “disciples” who got their feet washed and kissed at a Holy Thursday mass at the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows here.

The church in Macalister Road was packed with parishioners who prayed solemnly at the mass, which re-enacted the Last Supper when Jesus Christ gathered with his disciples the night before he was crucified.

Parish priest Monsignor Aloysius Tan said: “The washing of the feet symbolises an act of servitude, that we should reach out to the poor and marginalised within our community.”

Monsignor Tan said Holy Thursday was the commemoration of the Last Supper of Jesus Christ.

Holy Thursday also marked the beginning of the Paschal Triduum, a three-day period recalling the passion, death, burial and resurrection of Christ.

After Good Friday today, Christians will mark Holy Saturday tomorrow followed by Easter celebration on Sunday.

The Sacred Triduum: The Mystery of Faith

easter_triduumThe Easter Triduum begins today! The holiest season in our Catholic calendar. Don’t forget to attend all services during the Triduum.  Our parish schedule can be found here.

Here is a beautiful article on the Sacred Triduum, taken from Catholic Online, to be shared with all. Please do find time to read the whole article, until the end.  Read and reflect… and you will be better prepared to get involved in all the three days liturgies of the Service/Mass.

An interesting quote from the article:
Let us enter fully into the Sacred Triduum Liturgies. The Great Three Days of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Invite Us into Heart of the Mystery of Faith.Let it Begin!

The Sacred Triduum: Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter. The Mystery of Faith

By Deacon Keith Fournier
from Catholic Online 

“Beginning with the Easter Triduum as its source of light, the new age of the Resurrection fills the whole liturgical year with its brilliance. Gradually, on either side of this source, the year is transfigured by the liturgy” (Catechism of the Catholic Church) .

CHESAPEAKE, VA (Catholic Online) – The Easter Triduum begins with the Vigil of Holy Thursday. It marks the end of the forty days of Lent and the beginning of the three-day celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ – Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Vigil/Easter Sunday. The Fathers of the Second Vatican Council reminded us of the extraordinary significance of the Triduum : “Christ redeemed us all and gave perfect glory to God principally through his paschal mystery: dying he destroyed our death and rising he restored our life. Therefore the Easter Triduum of the passion and resurrection of Christ is the culmination of the entire liturgical year.” (General Norms for the Liturgical Year and the Calendar, # 18)
