Daily Lenten Reflections: The Easter Triduum — it is the Mirror Ball Trophy of the liturgical year. Sunday after Sunday, season after season brings us to this moment. It is the celebration of the Paschal Mystery, and we have been gearing up for it all year.
Daily Lenten Reflections: Mystagogy, not a word you hear every day, comes to us from the Greek meaning "interpretation of mystery."
