With nightfall our Lenten observance comes to an end, and we gather with Christians around the world to celebrate the Triduum, or the “Three Days” of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Holy (Maundy) Thursday is a day of remembrance, as we heed Jesus’ command, or mandate, to “do this”—that is, celebrate the holy meal of His body and blood—“in remembrance of Me.” At the end of the service, the depth of Christ’s servanthood is demonstrated as the chancel is reverently stripped in preparation for the Church’s observance of Jesus’ death on Good Friday. Today we begin our journey through the three days of Christ’s Passover from death to life and from captivity to freedom.
