My parish celebrates the Triduum as much as possible as "one day" -- gathering not only for the big liturgies of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and the Vigil, but for morning prayer each day and for Compline on Holy Thursday night. It's a powerful experience, at least for me, to sit together for all this time, in silence, in song, listening and speaking. It requires the concerted efforts of so many to bring it off, and to bring it off in a way that seems "unbusy" yet deeply and attentively plumbs the richness of the liturgical tradition.
It always leaves me with a sense we are a community that can sustain contemplation, and the contemplatives among us. Clearly I'm not alone in that, as Crash reflects here.
