Holy Week, the Eucharist, and the Sacramental Principle

Holy Week, the Eucharist, and the Sacramental Principle

Today is Holy Thursday. This evening the Triduum begins with the Mass of the Lord’s Supper. I have to secretly confess that I often find myself more excited about tonight’s celebration than I do about Easter. Don’t get me wrong… Easter is the highpoint. It is the feast of feasts. But, for reasons you will hear later, I often experience Holy Thursday in a more real, intimate, and personal way than I do Easter. But, that’s a secret, so don’t tell anybody.

Sarah Reinhard joins us today to talk about her experience of Holy Thursday. And we also discuss her new book, Catholic Family Fun: A Guide for the Adventurous, Overwhelmed, Creative or Clueless.

In this episode I also share with you a Holy Thursday interview with Dr. Brant Pitre that I first recorded in 2009.
