Holy Thursday

“The awareness of the sacrifice of Jesus, his loss to us in his earthly human life, should heighten our appreciation of him in this gift of the Eucharist, and the ongoing nourishment he gives to us in word and sacrament.”

Good Friday

“The response to the problem of evil is not offered to us in words. It is given to us in a person. It is Christ himself who takes the suffering of the innocent and nails it to the cross. We adore you O Christ, and we bless you. Because by your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.”

Easter Vigil

“In the Easter Vigil we walk with one another though the darkness of the vigil night, recalling the ways that God the Father has brought us from the darkness of sin and death into the light of new life.”
