The sacred three days (“Triduum”) has begun. Tonight was the Feast of Holy Thursday, a wonderful celebration of Jesus’ gifts of the Eucharist and the priesthood. We prayed specifically for priests, bishops and our Holy Father, and given the attacks on our wonderful pope, I thought this was very moving.
Fr. Tom gave a very good homily using some wisdom he got from a book called Thoughts Matter, which I might have to look into getting for myself. I wish I had taken in a pen and paper, he said so much to scribble down.
After Mass, we processed with the Eucharist to its place of keeping, singing the English version of the Pange, Lingua Gloriosi Corporis Mysterium. Once the Eucharist was enthroned, we sang “Jesus Remember Me” then ended with prayer and adoration.
I really enjoy the Latin Pange, Lingua, written by Thomas Aquinas.
