Easter Triduum
The liturgical season that follows Lent and precedes the Easter season.
It comes from the Latin roots that mean, "the three days" or "period of three days." Three days that prepare for a feast day through liturgy, prayer, and fasting.
This time is called "the triduum of the crucified, buried and risen;" it is also called the "Easter Triduum" because during it, the Paschal Mystery is celebrated, that is, the passing of the Lord from this world to his Father.


Through the yearly cycle, the Catechism of the Catholic Church explains, "the various aspects of the one Paschal mystery unfold" (CCC. 1171) The Church holds the Easter Triduum a special place in the liturgical year because it marks the culmination of the yearly celebration in proclaiming the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The General Norms for the Liturgical Year state that the Easter Triduum begins with the evening Mass of the Lord's Supper on Holy Thursday, "reaches its high point in the Easter Vigil, and closes with evening prayer on Easter Sunday."
