We stand on the Eve of the greatest Liturgy of the Year – the Triduum – Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday, which culminates in the celebration of Easter.
Each year, Alaskans take to the streets on Good Friday to memorialize the final hours of Christ’s life before his crucifixion.
Tonight, we focus our attention on the Lord, Jesus, who was anointed by the Father and sent into the world. We give thanks for the gift of the priesthood of Jesus Christ, which he shares in an intimate way with the ordained, who minister in his person.
