Lamezia, celebrazioni del Triduo Pasquale presiedute dal vescovo
With the celebration of Palm Sunday and the Passion of the Lord, Bishop Giuseppe Schillaci began the rites of Holy Week in the Lametine diocese, which will culminate in the Easter Triduum of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
«Faced with the Passion and Death of Jesus, our attitude should be that of silence. Let's reread this story during this week, this extraordinary fact of love. Jesus, with his Passion, does not respond to our criteria which are those of strength, power, even violence. Jesus, with his Passion and Death, reveals his face as a servant and shows all his love for humanity ”. Thus Bishop Schillaci in the celebration with which Jesus' entry into Jerusalem is commemorated every year. «Jesus enters Jerusalem on horseback, in meekness and humility - continued Schillaci - in the same way Christ wants to enter our life, the life of our community. Without pomp, without ostentation, but with its meekness and meekness ».
