Triduum: Memories and Mishaps


Read the full transcript of this episode 

We have just finished the celebrations of Holy Week and Easter. If you haven't had a chance to listen to the previous episode of our podcast, "Echoes from the Bell Tower," it focuses on the Triduum liturgies celebrated here at Saint Meinrad.

Every year, the monks pull out all the stops for these liturgies - candles, incense, music, prayer and ritual - all designed to remind us of Jesus' last days on earth and his triumphant Resurrection.

In this week's episode, we extend the celebration with some memories of past Triduum celebrations. Podcast hosts Br. Joel Blaize and Br. Kolbe Wolniakowski invite you to listen to some funny and heartwarming stories of previous Holy Week liturgies.

In this 11-minute episode, you'll hear accounts of second-degree burns, rambunctious lambs and a wayward cat.

As always, you can listen to this episode at the top of this page or go to iTunes or Stitcher and download "Echoes from the Bell Tower." Thanks for listening!
