Fishing With St. James
Crucified, Buried and Risen with
St. James Catholic Community
Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord signals that Lent is drawing to a close and we are entering the most sacred time of the Church Year. The Paschal Triduum (The Three Days) and the fifty days
of Easter are the goal of our forty days of preparation. St. Augustine called this “the triduum of the crucified, buried and risen.” The Triduum Entrance Antiphon; “We should glory in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, for he is our salvation, our life and our resurrection: through him we are saved and made free,” is derived from Galatians 6:14. Consider
arranging your week to make it “holy” by joining the community in celebrating these central mysteries of our faith. This is our annual parish and universal
church retreat. The times of services are in this bulletin. If you cannot attend the services make time to pray at home or visit the church.
As we experience this mystery of our salvation, may we all live, die, and rise in unity with the whole church.
This week’s bulletin insert continues our weekly reflections from Paul Turner. The last
line from the brief article Processions in Holy Week sums up the
whole article “The processions of Holy Week draw us into the mystery of the
death and resurrection of Christ. It is worthwhile to get up out of the pew.”
I am Joseph your brother, Fr. Joe Hannappel
