Easter Triduum: images

The Easter Triduum is the center of the liturgical year, the heart of the celebration of the mysteries of faith: a theological and liturgical compendium in which the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus are present.

The Good Friday service “narrated”, with the words of the Passio, the via dolorosa of Christ, from his capture to crucifixion and death: a sign of profound contrition and gratitude was the gesture of adoration of the cross.
