Many Christians keep a serious fast on this day, Good Friday. Many of these Christians do not know that tomorrow, though optional, is also kept as a day of fasting, according to the guidelines given today: only one full meal, plus two small meals not quite equal to the volume of the full one.
One diocese does promote this, I see. They suggest the replacement of the usual food and entertainment with prayer, charity, and spiritual reading.
I feel so flush with stuff … stuff from reading, stuff from liturgy, stuff from prayer, stuff from my daily life, that there’s nothing really to report or say. I don’t have time to write a novel or soap opera expose, so let me just comment that this Triduum, for me, is a time to coast the rushing river, see where the current beaches me, and then I’ll have a manageable insight or two. Or maybe not. Either way I’m good to go with God.
On that note, I’ll be taking a blogging break until Easter Sunday. Next week we’ll pick up with the final sections of Ad Gentes.
May all of you readers have a blessed and holy Triduum and a joyous Easter.
