Online Rosary Devotions to Continue Beyond Lent

Devotion is on Mondays starting at 11 am.  We recite a mystery and end with the Litany of Loreta.  Instructions on how to access the devotion can be found below.  Be reminded that the Blessed Virgin is the best intercessor on our behalf.  "She is the Mediatrix in union with Christ from Whom her mediation draws all its power!"

The liturgies of the days approaching Easter tell it all. After six weeks of introspection and amending our lives, doing penances and little self-mortifications we now approach the great moment – the greatest moment in history when all of mankind was rescued from sin and offered the salvation which would enable everlasting life. What an overwhelming thought – to live forever. Better yet, to live forever in the presence of God whose love for us has no bounds.

Palm (Passion) Sunday vestments are red, always the color of martyrs shedding their blood. The King of Martyrs, Jesus Christ, is welcomed into Jerusalem with joy and celebration, The statues and crosses are shrouded in purple, a reminder that Jesus then went into hiding and was no longer visible All the consolations from the familiar figures are gone from our sight. We enter now into the Paschal mysteries.

On Thursday evening the vestments are white, the color of celebration. Why? At the Last Supper Jesus instituted the Holy Eucharist giving himself entirely to us if we but open our hearts to receive him. He also instituted the sacrament of Holy Orders guaranteeing us that privilege in perpetuity. We follow him into his passion with this the first day of the Triduum, and we have the feeling of loss as the monstrance is taken in procession around the church and then into sacred seclusion away from our sight. The altar is stripped bare, the tabernacle left open the Savior is no longer here.

On Friday, the priest wears an alb and stole for the reading of the Passion and the veneration of the cross. During all the days of Lent no 'alleluia' is spoken, no flowers adorn, and after Thursday no bells are rung. We are bereft without him. Then, the majestic joy of Easter arrives with the Vigil Mass of Easter. The Paschal candle is lit and from it our candles as the church thunders her joy. He is risen!

Lights illumine a flower decked altar and the bells ring all through the Creed. The voices sing out “Alleluia”. The priest in white leads us into the jubilant first Mass of Easter. Let us sing from the heart: Alleluia, Jesus is risen!
