Easter Triduum

I attended all three Easter Triduum masses at my parish church. On Holy Thursday the church was about 3/4 full.

On Good Friday, the 3:00 p.m. service was also about 3/4 full.

The Easter Vigil was about 2/3 full and clocked in at exactly 2 hours (started at 8:00 p.m. and ended exactly at 10:00 p.m.). Four out of the seven Old Testament readings were included. I was hoping for all seven but I understand why Father did not all included.

I love those three days. I like the fact that the people who attend do so because they want to and not because they are obligated to.
