Totally by accident, I ended up live-tweeting our Maundy Thursday worship at my parish. Afterward, I used Storify to gather up the tweets, added a little commentary, and shared it on my facebook page. The response was so tremendous that I live-tweeted our Good Friday and Holy Saturday observances, as well as the Great Vigil of Easter. Here are those stories, for anyone who wants to walk the Way of the Cross again.
So here are those stories, all in one place, for your Triduum convenience!
- Maundy Thursday: the night we celebrate the Last Supper (the first Eucharist), Jesus washing the disciples’ feet, and the commandment to love one another as he has loved us.
- Good Friday: the day we participate in the arrest and execution of Jesus, observing his death and burial, acknowledging our complicity and brokenness.
- Holy Saturday: this brief liturgy focuses us on Christ in his tomb, on the loss and grief and un-knowing-ness of this day in between.
- The Great Vigil of Easter: the biggest, most lavish, most amazing celebration of worship of the entire year… followed by a great Wedding Feast.
May the Holy Spirit guide your feet, your mind, and your heart as you walk with Jesus through Jerusalem, through betrayal and arrest and execution, through the cross, through the grave, and into miraculous new life.
