Triduum is the word we use to talk about Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter! It's actually one long Mass!
You mean there is a Mass that is longer than the one we went to last Sunday - wow!
There is indeed Tallulah. But the people go home between each part. And each part is only about 1 hour to 1 and a half hours.
So tonight is Thursday, so that must mean the Triduum starts tonight with Holy Thursday!
Very clever Tallulah. Do you know what happens at this part of the Mass?
I sure do, this is when we remember Jesus' last supper with his friends, the apostles.
In fact, I found a craft over at Catholic Icing of the Last Supper.
And do you remember some of the very important things that Jesus did at the Last Supper.
Well I think this is when he turned the bread and wine into his body and blood.
I think he also created the priesthood that night.
Clearly you have been doing some studying Tallulah, I'm very proud of you.
Here is a short video of that Last Supper (+ the rest of the story.)
