THE PASCHAL TRIDUUM
This is the shortest of all the seasons in the Liturgical Calendar, but the most important of all.
"Palm Sunday is the beginning of Holy Week and leads to the celebration of the Sacred Paschal Triduum: Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday.
"There is a dual nature to the liturgy of Palm Sunday. On this day we hear two Gospels: the gospel story of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem at the beginning of Mass; and the proclamation of the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ during the Liturgy of the Word. The joyful shouts of “Hosanna” are soon replaced with “Let him be crucified!”
"The Sacred Paschal Triduum is the central liturgical celebration of the Roman Catholic Church. The three liturgies of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil are, in fact, ONE continuous liturgy that commemorates the passion, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ." (Holy Trinity Catholic Church Site).

APRIL 21, 2019
HE IS RISEN; WE BELIEVE!
I. THE READING
The First Reading summarizes the whole life of Jesus beginning from his baptism up to his passion, death and resurrection.
The Second Reading, reflecting on the resurrection of Jesus Christ urges baptized Christians to change their value system. Christians must live lives proper to their new identity as Christians, as risen ones also (obtained through baptism).
The Gospel Reading tells us the story of how the resurrection of Jesus is found out by Mary of Magdala and Peter and John.
