Lent / Easter

The Holy Thursday Liturgy marks the end of the 40 days of Lent and the beginning of the "Triduum", the three days which mark the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ including Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday. At this Liturgy, the Church commemorates the gift of the Holy Eucharist, the institution of the ministerial Priesthood and "the Mandatum",the new Command to Love as he Loves. The Footwashing rite symbolically proclaims the implications of the example of Jesus Christ who washed the feet of his disciples at the Last Supper.
