The images out of Paris following the fire are heartbreaking, but it is good to see people stepping up to offer financial assistance in the rebuilding of Notre Dame.
My word of encouragement to you for today is simple--prepare to celebrate the Triduum well. Holy Thursday is not a day of obligation, but it is a tremendous day of opportunity to celebrate the Eucharist in a way that solemnly connects us with the Last Supper. Good Friday is not an obligation, but it commemorates in a very somber way the passion and death of our Lord. The Easter Vigil on Saturday night is a lengthy celebration, but it is a beautiful service truly walking us through salvation history. Please don't miss the chance to be part of these wonderful liturgies.
Have a blessed Holy Week!
