Paschal Triduum 07

Happy Easter folks! I hope you've had a prayerful Holy Week.

And to those newly incorporated into the Catholic Church, like Shellie, welcome home!

Since the photo posts of Palm Sunday and the Paschal Triduum Celebrations in my parish are taking up a lot of bandwidth and slowing the page down, I've reposted them elsewhere and linked them to this post.

The Paschal Triduum and indeed, the entire Holy Week has been a time of great blessing for me and I want to share the joyous celebrations here with you.

Please click on the links to see each individual post. A new window will pop up. And do drop me a comment to let me know what you think. Christos anesti! Alithos anesti!

Andrew, thank you for the pictures and for your thoughtful blog. I have just begun to explore blogs and am not too good at keeping track of where I've been. I wanted to show my son the pictures of the garden altar of repose but couldn't find where I had seen them. Now I have them again. We both loved the Phillipine altar picture and he copied it for his desk top. Is that legal? It's sad when a son has parents with no clue about the morality of act. His belief is that the web is public unless specified but I would chose to err on the side of caution and just come and look at it now and then. So you see you have met a seriously old, but still growing, Catholic lady.
Happy Easter!

LOL! Thank you, Nan, for your comments. I'm glad you found it. If you click on the Holy Thursday title header, you'll find the full post and all the photos. I moved it because it was slowing the page down.

As for the copyright, don't worry about it. I think Arch, who took the Philippine photo would not mind at all.

In fact, most of the things on the web come under a creative commons license whereby the content can be freely downloaded for personal non-commercial use. By all means, should you find any photo that you like on this humble blog, do feel free to use it as you see fit.

Thank again, Nan, for dropping by and commenting. Me own Nan just celebrated her 81st birthday recently. I'm now reminded to post the photos.

I'm going to highlight some of the most stunning photos I've ever seen, from Spain, soon. Do look out for it.

PS
A good way to keep track of blogs is to bookmark them or add them as favourites. That way, they are listed in your browser.

Happy Easter!
