Q&A Holy Week Edition



A reminder to everyone--during the Triduum, Evening Prayer is replaced by the Mass of the Lord's supper on Holy Thursday and the  the Liturgy of Good Friday.Holy Saturday is unique. You'll notice that Evening Prayer of Holy Saturday is NOT called Evening Prayer I of Easter. This one day of the year, Evening Prayer on a Saturday commemorates Saturday rather begins Sunday.  The Easter Vigil mass replaces the Office of Readings and Vigils for Easter Sunday.

Welcome new followers aguileon and Ann Seeton! This is our weekly Q&A. If anything about the Liturgy of the Hours confuses you, or you're just curious about some bit of liturgical trivia, ask in the comments section, and I (and sometimes savvy followers) will do our best to supply the answers.
