Blessed Triduum & Easter -- Back on Easter Monday

Today, I travel to visit my family; to spend the Triduum and Easter among those I love. It is never quiet when my family gathers. It is boisterous and joyful, energetic and exhausting, always full of fun and conversation about faith, politics, history, life -- always full of FOOD!

While I am out of town, you will notice that Faith Fact Friday and Will They Eat This? will be on hiatus. They will return next week -- and get ready because I intend to let others join me on their blogs with a Mr. Linky to Will They Eat This? I hope that many of you will have as much fun sharing your recipes, stats and verdicts as I do.

Have a blessed Triduum and Easter. I will see you on Easter Monday!

For your reflection:

From the Chrism Mass -- The Gospel According the Luke (Lk 4:16-21)

Jesus came to Nazareth, where he had grown up,
and went according to his custom
into the synagogue on the sabbath day.
He stood up to read and was handed a scroll of the prophet Isaiah.
He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring glad tidings to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.


Rolling up the scroll, he handed it back to the attendant and sat down,
and the eyes of all in the synagogue looked intently at him.
He said to them,
“Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”
