How beautiful it is to stand before the Crucifix, simply to be under the Lord’s gaze, so full of love. ~Pope Francis

For many Christians, Holy Thursday marks the beginning of the Easter Triduum – the three days leading to Easter Sunday. These days are considered the most important days of our Christian faith in which we recall the passion, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. During these holy days, I shall take a break from blogging and recall Jesus’ loving sacrifice for me and thank him for his love.
