Triduum at Mount Irenaeus 

I’m living the dream. Every year for the past 17 I’ve come to Mount Irenaeus for Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter vigil. It’s my favorite part of the church year. Last night we celebrated the liturgy of the Lord’s Supper. It began with a dinner at at the House of Peace and culminated with the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in Holy Peace Chapel. I love the intimate setting of the community here at Mount Irenaeus. It’s much is I imagine that first last supper Jesus had with his disciples. This year, instead of driving home after the evening, I stayed overnight in the Hermitage of St.Clare. I will be staying here for two more nights and celebrating the Triduum with the rest of the community here. I spent a restful night and woke up to the beautiful peace and quiet that surrounds this Hermitage. I am praying for peace in our world. That has been my prayer for all of Lent. I have found a great deal of peace in praying for others especially those with whom I disagree.
