Photopost: Traditional Triduum Celebrated in Charlotte


Catholicism is beautiful. Tradition is beautiful. At no time is this more evident than during the Sacred Triduum, those three days at the end of Passiontide when the Church commemorates Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. Regardless of the current crisis and ongoing confusion in the Church today, the resurgence of tradition is providing much needed liturgical stability and doctrinal clarity for an increasing number of the faithful.

This has indeed been the case in my home Diocese of Charlotte, North Carolina. For the second consecutive year a traditional Easter Triduum was offered in the chapel at the Catholic High School. These sacred liturgies have been both beautiful and efficacious for all involved.

  1. This is great!

    And Pre-1955 at that!

      • You all are to be commended. We had the pre-1955 done here at St. Mary’s Norwalk, CT as well. Maundy Thursday was 3 hours. Good Friday Matins and Lauds were 2 hours. Good Friday 15:00 Passion 2 hours. Good Friday Procession with the dead Christ and Our Lady of Sorrows 4 hours (Bishop Caggiano attended). Holy Saturday Matins and Lauds 2 hours. Easter Vigil 4.5 hours. I was completely blown away by the schola and choirs; nothing short of world class. The parish of St. Mary’s Norwalk will be sending 4 young men to their studies for the priesthood this fall. All of them are products of the Traditional Latin Mass.

    Jesus came to make all things new. Doesn’t look like there’s much new here. Just sayin’.

    • Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever! He indeed makes all things new again through the sacred liturgy. I was present for these Masses and can attest to that.

    The heart of the Church. The healthy part. Growing again with healthy new shoots of young priests and young communities. Thank you Your Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.

  5. It was a privilege to be there as witness and participant. Deo Gratias

  6. Very nice Brian. Tradition is beautiful and of great comfort. It’s disheartening that so many churches are trying to draw in the secular population By ” changing things up “.

  7. Deo Gratias! It’s wonderful to see such good things happening in the Diocese of Charlotte. Doesn’t Bishop Jugis wants his newly ordained priests to know how to say the TLM?
