"Let us glory in the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in whom is our salvation"
Today we mark the beginning of the Triduum — Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday — the three days when we remember in a special way the mysteries of our redemption.
At the beginning of the Holy Thursday liturgy, we pray:
"We should glory in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
in whom is our salvation, life and resurrection,
through whom we are saved and delivered."
(cf. Gal 6:14; Entrance Antiphon, Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord's Supper)
Join us as we journey through these days. We hope these short video reflections will be a help to enter into these mysteries and celebrate the gift of plentiful redemption!
Who are the Redemptorists?
Two thousand years ago Jesus said, “He sent me to preach the Good News to the poor.” Since 1732 the Redemptorists have followed in His footsteps, preaching the Word and serving the poor and most abandoned. Our congregation of missionary priests and brothers was founded by St. Alphonsus Liguori. Like the first Apostles, our mission—and our joy—is bringing the message of salvation to all people. As Redemptorists, we have a special devotion to crib, cross, Mary, and the Eucharist. To learn more, explore our website and connect with us on Google+, Facebook, and Twitter.
