Easter Reflection ~ Reflexiones de Pascua

Holy Week is Holy Week! I grew up with that idea. For me, it’s difficult to connect with daily activities and work just as a regular week. Holy Week is a time to reflect and connect with the passion and resurrection of Jesus Christ in silence and prayer, especially during the Paschal Triduum.  
 
During the Triduum (Three solemn days) we celebrate the Lord’s Passion, Death and Resurrection from the evening of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and evening of Easter Sunday.

We, Christians, believe that Jesus rose from the death at the third day...His disciples were witness of the empty tomb. (Mark 16). Easter invites us to take time to reflect on Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, his suffering and his glorious triumph over death and more... 
His Second Coming! (John 20:7)


 

Easter Season
By Maritza Martinez Mejia @2021

The cross
The empty tomb
Real symbols
What is this about?

A sacrifice
A miracle
A reminder…
All the immense love

A God
A Man
A Spirit
What a mystery!

Happy Easter!
Have a blessed Paschal Triduum: Evening of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and evening of Easter Sunday.
 

¡La Semana Santa, es Semana Santa! Crecí con esa idea. Para mí, es difícil conectar con las actividades diarias y trabajar como una semana normal. La Semana Santa es un momento para reflexionar y conectar con la pasión y resurrección de Jesucristo en silencio y oración, especialmente durante el Triduo Pascual.

Durante el Triduo (Tres días solemnes) celebramos la Pasión, Muerte y Resurrección del Señor desde la noche del Jueves Santo, Viernes Santo, Sábado Santo y noche del Domingo de Pascua.

Nosotros, los cristianos, creemos que Jesús se levantó de la muerte al tercer día... Sus discípulos fueron testigos de la tumba vacía. (Marcos 16). La Pascua nos invita a tomarnos un tiempo para reflexionar sobre el sacrificio de Jesús en la cruz, su sufrimiento y su glorioso triunfo sobre la muerte y más... su segunda venida. (Juan 20:7)


¡Felices Pascas!
