Where Charity and Love Prevail

Tonight. It Begins. Again.  As the sun's light fades tonight, Catholics all over the world enter the Easter Triduum - the Three Days outside of time. Three days different from all others. There is no more "business as usual" - instead, we surrender to being swept into the dark world of Jesus' Passion and death, leading us to the glory of Resurrection in the darkness before the dawn of Easter.

In the heart of this - the Paschal Mystery - we are asked to discover who we really are as disciples of Jesus Christ. Through the rituals of the washing of the feet and the procession of the Holy Eucharist tonight, we are led to discover the ultimate meaning of divine love - a love that was and is willing to give all for others without holding back.

In this we find our identity. May we rediscover it tonight with joy. Where charity and love prevail, there is God.
